Our Preposterous Fictions

The preposterous fictions many
           profess to be unvarnished truth
     warp the very fabric of our universe --
cause those long dead to walk among us
  in the spectral midnights in our minds.
The bone dust of those past millennia
      films our eyes, coats our shelves
of sacred primers, our missals,
         unquestionable in their catechistic
authority -- and we become
 the acolytes of those controllers
      who have themselves always been
instructed, conditioned, and suppressed
            by generations of these teachers --
through example, reward, or punishment.
Think!  Open up your mind!
    The truly free do not fear to question
        and to decide the truth or falsity
of any proposition, any statement
     or assertion, and to openly declare
what they have concluded to be true.
Or false.

    Inundated by some schism well worth that title

    Leo, we must think for ouselves, question and do our own research, for in that light we may make our own incredible discoveries. This is a great poem my friend! 7 ; )
