LAWLESS

How would your gentle soul respond,
Were there no established law?
Would you not to a group belong,
That suited your rapport?
What moral structures would exist,
What faithfulness what pride;
Would trust be in the hearts of men
Who would, your fate, decide?
Is there a crueller savage beast
Than man freed from his cage,
Vying for the power that comes
From the wars that he would wage
To prove himself a better man
Than all others of his age?
