Pontiac - Honestas (Respectability in Society)

in the march of goose-stepping Brownshirts,

I desire no honestas,

in the yell of cross-burning Klansmen,

I desire no honestas,

in the prayers of self-martyring Terrorists,

I desire no honestas,

in the greed of worker-exploiting Industrialists,

in the lies of power-grubbing Politicians,

in the words of self-aggrandizing Preachers,

I desire no honestas,

But in the society of everyday, go-to-work, make-a-living,love-your-neighbor, do-your-share, live-and-let-live,

This honestas, I desire, oh, yes, I so desire.

The End
