If we stood on the shoulders of giants

What an enlightened world ours would be

Built on a breadth of existing foundations 

Views unobstructed—clarity 

This concept of the ages 

Based on knowledge proven and vast

Threatened only by one politician 

Determined to send us into the past

Wipe out decades of hard won progress

Such as equal rights for men, women— all

History locked in closed books and revised

Giants vanish…we’re certain to fall.
