The Travesty of a Generation


So you think you know about the world

Espousing something you read from a book

Something that a liberal arts professor said

But did you research it yourself and take a good look?

So if you’re going to make an argument

You better learn how to make your case

Only the rules of logic

Is what you must embrace

Do not trust the sophist

Nor the emotionally manipulated mind

Not the religious scientism cult

These are all of an ignorant kind

I have pity for the indoctrinated youth

I have contempt for federalized education

A travesty of an ignorant populace

The travesty of a generation

The Road to Hell


The road to hell

Is often paved with good intent

Our miscalculations and prejudice

Weighs in on our consent

We say our belief

Is divinely inspired

Whether divinity or dogma

We continue with ways to conspire

To whomever we will give our praise

Our actions are mortally bound

Herein lies our salvation

As the eternal will never make a sound

We have perfecting philosophies for a reason

We are flawed and can only aspire to be divine

Yet our arrogance and our natures

Often distort what we think is benign

The Method of the Con


The Socratic method is under attack

We are less likely to debate

A flawed group think identity

That only wants to berate

When you emotionalize an argument

You diminish your ability to reason

The sophistry begins

As it is now open season

The Platonic dialogue Georgias

Philosophy is an art

Not the mere rhetoric

That is shown to fall apart

Today’s world is rapidly increasing

With the intellectually impoverished youth

An educational system collapsing

Under our failure to teach what is truth?

Debate should never be stifled

Our liberty to engage the critic must go on

Only the merit of logic

Will illuminate the method of the con

Enrich a life to Survive


Ethics should have a deep root

In everything that we do

Our treatment of other people

Of ourselves

And of politics too

We have all been wronged

But there are many who don’t know why

Disassociate from yourself and others

The amoral have no need to lie

What happened to our culture and people?

A devil’s ego that lives within

Excludes themselves from others morality

This herein lies the sin

A destruction of family and values

An educational system designed to fail

America’s literacy rate of 17 percent

The proof in the pudding of this tale

The greatest threat to western society

When migrants do not assimilate

If they care not of liberty yet demand equality

There defines the cultural checkmate

So if these words reach you

Keep our values alive

Educate and teach to others

Enrich a life to survive

What is worst?


Actions speak louder than words

We will all experience betrayal in life

But what is worst?

The betrayal itself we conspire

Or being in denial without our knowledge of it first?

Lack of objectivity?

Self-deception?

How can you hold yourself accountable?

With the flaws in self- perception?

What will be the muse that guides you?

What will be the ruse that divides you?

How will you navigate?

Set your compass in the sea?

Where do you fix the North Star?

Set the course in our humanity?

My Reason to Forgive


I’ve contemplated my behavior

Always wanting to be on the right side of my wrongs

But this focus will also shed

Much of the error within others and where it belongs

We can only control what is in our power

We must forgive others the folly of their deceit

Exoneration is not for the sole sake of relieving guilt

But for the sake of the soul we do not want to deplete

(My reason to forgive)

The Quicksand of the Soul


Attachment

The quicksand of the soul

Siddhartha mustered this insight

So many, many years ago

How do I know?

How do I relate?

Do I make this up?

Do I confabulate?

How many paths?

How many ways?

We can seduce ourselves

Clinging to this fantasy gaze

Fear not my compatriots

The wisdom comes from age

Tempered in the forge of reality

Allow the mind to disengage
