Paris Commune Of 1871

Paris is on fire! Roiling smoke blackens the sky
Wild-eyed revolutionaries run through the streets
Chanting slogans of a utopian life

Arsonists laugh with maniacal screams
Put buildings, books and antiquities to flame
Vandals topple statues with cheers of glee; nothing is sacred

An asymmetrical war against Western civilization
When murderers and thieves become the police
And doctrinaires rule committee chairs
