To read Rousseau partakes in history

A personal and public insurrection

Gives society a new direction

And everything is better than it was

When sensibility’s allowed to rule

No one is left behind to play the fool

One soul so sensitive began the movement

A boomerang for everyone’s improvement

A long time reason reigned and overbore

The will of nature beauteous and bold

Wild impulse of a passion never told

Revolts against the head till many rolled

The bloody revolution made us pause

How worthy was the insurrection’s cause

Can headless bodies navigate our fate

Or heads without a body guide us straight?
