The speech was given long ago,
It’s substance was concealed;
The meeting room is empty now,
The meaning is revealed

The words rang out in angry rage,
The avid hearers, eager —
The left to claim their big returns,
Which turned out to be meager

There is a haunting in the place,
And I am here to hear it;
What was revealed is living now
And if you’re sane
You fear it
