The Song of the Hunt
Tracing an ever wider spiral,
The Hunt circles the world of mortals.
Everything decays in the centrifugal vortex,
Pure anarchy rages over the world.
The winds of war swell on blood,
Flooding the rites of ancient innocence.
The best lose all hope, and the worst
Revel in fervent and fitful power.
Looking glass images without heart or mind
Haunt the worlds in the name of those,
Who have preserved blood from blood,
And feed on unrestrained lust.


The song is a paraphrasing of the first verse of the poem, The Second Coming, by W.B. Yeats:

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
