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)
