Descartes Downfall

Written by: Stephen Petluk gentle fury

Descartes
A Great thinker without doubt
except that doubt is a major part
of his thesis which many a lout
can quote
"i think therefore I am"
but a philosopher
would never calculate
a complete abdication of thought
which has become self-evident
in a society of consumers
whose attention span has been
cannibalized into soundbites
to a point where
conscious thought is 
endangered 
and common wisdom
is a function of rote repetition
at the expense of self-awareness
it's so much easier
not having to think
and clean your plate
of the lies
fed to you
without question
without a doubt
