Am i just a deluded biased fan or could Billy have written something very similar if not quite as good circa machina?

Second Coming by WB 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.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.

okay somebody swapped the word machina for homosexual in my post heading. i laughed but it still kind of pisses me off plus in my extreme technical ignorance i didn't think non-moderators could fuck with other peoples post.

people and more people of all the known races

Sometimes we lose ourselves in ourselves

...and when I find my strength, it is already in place

While with a spoon I kill all the elves
