An Old Recipe

September 22, 2016


thoughts coagulate in

a cauldron of ignorance

the ingredients are

always the same

envy

avarice

intolerance

and idolatry

to name just a few

words form atop the brackish,

viscous foam of stupidity

the message that spills

over is both vile and bitter

paradoxically, for some, the

flavor is sweet to the pallet

while others don’t seem to

notice the vitriolic aftertaste

its essence is rarely seasoned

with even a modicum of truth

 

but then…

 

after all we have seen and heard,

would we know the flavor of truth?
