Once upon a time, in an eon that has passed,
seekers were companions who thought truth we could catch.
Little band of children convinced there was road-map
to body of knowledge, enlightenment on tap.

Naivety of youth thought truth was black and white,
knew a grail most holy could fill us with insight.
We could not comprehend that while there’s thing called truth
that it is pure daydream that we’ll know absolute.

Labyrinth of seekers befuddled by life’s maze
lurk now in cul de sacs and at walls scream our rage.
Angered that the goalpost, the gate to our touchdowns,
was just sad illusion advanced by charlatans.

Charlatans and hawkers, those with gewgaws to sell,
is what we’ve all become as let truth go to hell.
No longer do we seek road to understanding,
rather we’ve got axes that we love sharpening.

We’ve our feline cat-claws with which we itch to strike
what we do not fancy we attack out of spite.
At a moment’s notice we’re hissing, spitting cats
intent on destroying, we’re anti diplomats.

Rather when we’ve idea or person we believe
we declare it perfect; good Lord, we’re self-deceived!
Deceived into thinking that we must litigate;
rather than discover, just sow discord and hate.

Banner that we’re flying, our cause de célèbre,
insist is the one path, the truth to set us free.
No need to check sources, no need to check our facts,
aligns with our beliefs so we’ll just run with that.

Blinders are for horses and we are the tail-end
when brake of disbelief  we partisans suspend.
When prejudice aligns with product that we hawk
really don’t give a damn if probity is lost.

Hawking is defined as, “Advertise by shouting,”
‘nother definition is throat clearing spitting.
Abandoned search for truth, left our minds in the maze
seems now our only goal is hawking our outrage.

Once upon a time, in an eon that has passed,
seekers were companions who thought truth we could catch.
Little band of children convinced there was road-map
to body of knowledge, enlightenment on tap.
