Poem For A Dead Ideologue…

Hindsight, that old master,
Helps me size you up and lecture
On your faults and on your sins
And everything you should have been.

I know every mistake:
The chances that you didn’t take;
The doomed hypotheses;
The errors and the fallacies.

Would I have known them then
Or would I have been taken in?
What am I swallowing
That future men could wallow in?
