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.
