Dark Ivory Tower

Hey Academic,

throw me some facts

Explain to me clearly

each thought you attack


Dear Intellectual,

restate and rephrase

Your version of truth,

empty words in the fray


Hello Professor,

is the poison pill done

Refilled with your venom

to spread to the young


And lastly the Critic

who stands by the wall,

Humpty Dumpty awaiting

your push to then fall


While open minds sit

in the cold and the rain,

Your cowardly torrents

bring nothing but pain


To all those so cloistered,

divorced from what’s real

Perdition your tenure

—inflamed to repeal


(Beaupre: November, 2020)
