Can You Imagine a Day

Can you imagine a day
When a culture—
Long hardened against theft,
And having counted it an intolerable
Menace to society—
Should suddenly change its mind,
Congratulating itself on
Its new enlightenment—
Now heralding theft as a sacred right,
Glorifying the plight of the thieves,
Dismissing the great cost of it all
To the society,
And reviling those darkened souls
From the old school
Who still dare to complain?

It is not hard for me to
Imagine that day—
Having recently seen
Others quite like it.
