The Verisimilitudes of Fools

The Verisimilitudes of Fools

Stricken by catastrophe
impoverished, our hearts
hunger, though small

imaginations flounder
beside the appearance of truth.

Blinded by the allure of false reason,
the sacred becomes obscured

apathy takes its turn
on the wheel

driving fevered dreams
over fallow fields

harvesting nothing
but the dying
chorus of false empathy, killing

the scholar’s intellect with
the unremarkable stamp
of opinion.
