I.


In the fires


Are forged


The weapons

Despair


Only truth


Cuts through


The ugly


There


 


II.


A friend

Is not


A friend

Does not


Please


Oneself

Hard—


Impossible


to Place


 


IV.

Great


People pass


Through Hell


Recognize the


Populace


Their


Banshee


Call


 


V.


The way


To knowledge


Rife with


Fear


Only the


Most tenacious


Conquer


Their


Failure


There
