Was That Then

Somebody said
Thou nobody knows
They think it so
Because somebody said
and so it is

I can hear the laughter underground
as they hang the witches from the fences

Wind torn truth caught in the barbwire
of a make believe fence
rinsed
with the blood of the innocent

Somebody said that was then
But I ask
What about now
