Where Pigs Fly

The magnitude of ignorance

staggers beyond

the scope of imagining,

a weakening throng

 

The danger of assumption,

its hard biting edge

empowers deception

shoved over the ledge

 

The vacuums of denial

we fight to defend

are lost in the moment

pushed out to the end

 

This emptiness we carry

and knowledge we fear

footnote our destruction

—as fools shed a tear
