'Twas once as central as the Rede,
Distinctive and profound.
Of freedom as a professed creed,
New paths for us to travel down.
It might be in a moonlit glade,
or rooms with candles all aglow.
There were no issues to pursuade,
The truth, our souls already know.
Yet freedom sometimes seems a threat,
For those imprisoned by their doubt.
The mundane world not ready yet,
So compromise, or do without.
Victims march in and proclaim,
Their sacrament of modesty.
Instilling a new sense of shame.
Old ways pushed back, obscurity.
Once we had nothing to hide,
Our success has a painful cost.
For mature wisdom, once our pride,
Will this tradition soon be lost?
