Alienation

Subjective reality

Here’s to view that’s retrospective
Tracking subjective directive
No more obfuscation
Or alienation
Lacking customer perspective

Poesy plus Polemics

jude_griebel_the_lonely_painting_23784_360 “The Lonely Painting” by Jude Griebel

how to live in a world
no longer your own
where your values
are trashed and your
ethics are gnashed in
the merciless jaws of
effete intellectual
solipsists aiming for
ignorant progress
deluded new dogmas
commissioned intolerance
framing ad hominem
scathing indictments
of any and all
disagreement

how to live in a world
you no longer love
truth be told but
it cannot be done
no choice left but to
turn yourself inward
pursuing the strength
of conviction to foment
a new hearts-and-minds
revolution a strategy
seeking to freshen the
air to enlighten the
dark modern motive
with new suasion of
old timeless truths

From my book Ephemera
