Defiling The Unknown

There’s no bigger threat

than what’s still left to know


Its backbone religion,

as it sits on its throne


What cannot be stated

and proven as fact


Evangelists kidnap

and wear on their backs


With prophecy wrapped

in their folly misled


What’s still undiscovered,

leaves dogma undead


But then when the darkness

moves into light


Revivalists shout,

claiming: “See, we were right”


Leaving two kinds of liars

in this world to be shown


Those twisting the truth

—and those defiling the unknown


(Villanova Pennsylvania: August, 2019)
