    The poem should be spelled like this:

    guilt is the cause of more disauders
    than history’s most obscene marorders

    The two words spellings switch.

  2. Kat says:

    the poem is typed wrong … disorders is supposed to be spelled differently. the whole reason the poem is interesting is that there’s a play on the words “marauders” and “disorders.” check it out in the “no thanks” collection to see what it should actually say.

  3. dora williams says:

    the word is probably marauders – raiders, pillagers, rogues.

  4. Michelle says:

    What is maroders? I’m assuming it’s a mispelling of another word since Webster doesn’t define it as one, but what word?
