Hedonism in the September 11th Epic Poem

The time had come to pay the sum
            For years of vagrant hopes.             
 They cast their dice for paradise
            Upon a slipp’ry slope.                          
With feet of lead that had no tread
            They caved their culture’s floor;
‘Til things took place that cracked the base,     
            Which time could not restore.
With selfish pride they justified 
            What once was named as sin.
And built new doors by endless scores
            To let more pleasures in.
But all their sense could never quench
            Their wish to have it all:
They had no clue what houses do
            When stripped of all their wall!
(Excerpt from chapter 11)
