MOTHER OF ALL EVILS

Written by: Demetrios Trifiatis

Mother of all Evils



You,
Hard-of-hearing,
Dweller of darkness,
Mother of all evils:
Ignorance

You, who are unable 
To hear the truth,
Even though it is spoken
Through the mouth of
Thunder,
But who easily discern 
The fainting whispers
Of monstrous lies, 

Why don’t you open, 
For once,
Your detrimental prison
Of calamitous darkness 
And let luminous knowledge
Establish its dominion
For humanity's sake?
