Videopoetry: From SEPTEMBER 1, 1939



From SEPTEMBER 1, 1939 


All I have is a voice

To undo the folded lie,

The romantic lie in the brain

Of the sensual man-in-the-street 

And the lie of Authority

Whose buildings grope the sky: 

There is no such thing as the State 

And no one exists alone;

Hunger allows no choice

To the citizen or the police;

We must love one another or die.




POET


W.H. Auden
