“I Would Rather Be A Mystic”
In a world of vanity,
I would rather be a mystic.
Deranged politicians espouse morality while acting immorally.
Intellectuals are derided for pursuing knowledge,
And uneducated citizens take exception to discourse.
The asylum is being run by the inmates,
And apathy grows prominent by the minute.
Human blight, cheering on the failure of progress.
Twisted hearts hate for hate’s sake.
The truth is right there at the end of our noses,
But the comfort provided by cowardice Trumps reason.
If you keep going left and right,
You will be traveling in a circle.
