Common Paradise

The Common Paradise

You want to reach the Common Paradise?
Annihilate your noble qualities!
You conquered, yes – but you were far from nice.
You want to reach the Common Paradise?
Let all your strengths be redefined as vice!
Stand not erect, but fall upon your knees!
You want to reach the Common Paradise?
Annihilate your noble qualities!

–Tom Riley

William Blake, Ulysses and Diomed
