A diatribe for those that reason’s way
Confound and leave in disarray,
Who like the smith bend iron truth
To fit their worldly goals, god’s zounds, foresooth!!!
To those sanctimonious anachronisms
Who in god’s service confute wisdom;
With edict, prophecy -and- scriptures proclaim
“Therein lies truth’s domain.”
For them the revealed truths are singular,
Conflicting evidence and logic they disbar.
With laws and swords at adversaries throats,
For humming different tune and notes.
No verbal pretext to mass morality
Can justify their heinous brutality3
And how they human nature and social order misalign
In their errant veneration of the divine.
Those who disclaim what evidence promotes
Deserve to receive much worse then they wrote
To those erudite pontificating pendants
Whose obfuscation students must recant
Cause they amalgamate science with disparate parts,
And grandiloquently twaddle to exhibit pseudo—smarts~
Their fulsome array chimerically confounds;
Once in learned halls their type abound,
Yet still in this age of science too many are around.
To those whose aesthetic tastes give license
To floridly doodle vacuous verse void of sense
On gossamer wings the infernal abyss, vales,
and lofty mountains
Or abut in a falderal of words and phrases significance
And those windbags with highfalutin prose
Make the reader doze; -
Their drivel, natters, jabber, prattle, blather, blabber
Makes me spirits all the sadder.
From those whose logic’s weaker than pleasure’s end
The worldly perils are our dividends;
They swallow our traditions and our present plight;
And believe their slogans guide the way to right.
But change started so long ago by Thales,
Who first the mythical assailed
With plain godless reason and the laws of nature;
His way with modern science has matured.
So when man with logic upon the mythical prevails
Utopia will cease to be a fairy—tale.
