Dominos, by Brian37

Dominos, By Brian37

Elaborate

To say the least

Convoluted

Is their best

 

They rape entropy

And Second Law

Trying to adapt it

To their flaws

 

They want you focused

On the ornate

On their creativity

Doomed to fail

 

 I refuse

To play their game

Of yellow brick roads

Or kiss their frog

 

There is no prince

In absurdity

Brains with no body

Are fantasy

 

Hijacking buzzwords

Does not fool me

Their vacuous starting point

Is what I see

 

Like dominos

Their arguments fall

The emperor's cloths

Transparent to all

 

With fervor they shout

With doomed passion

Scrutiny their enemy

Leaves them in tatters

 

Their invisible friend

Is not on a table


In a lab

To be dissected

 

Their invisible friend

Lacks atomic weight

Or location

Or measurement

 

The explination

That is real

And least complicated

Is their imagination

 

Don't worry Ochamm

About corrupting me

There is no pyre

For us to dwell

 

Just hollow threats

And hedging bad bets

On invisible horses

In a fictional race

 

Their derby of deities

In their triple crown

Their horses all dominos

Wont leave the gate

 

They run to their bookies

Slapping cash on the counter

Betting on "Utopia"

With their god as the rider

 

Black and white dots

They prop up with glee

Only to be toppled

By reality

 

Then they get violent

From indignity

Demanding respect

For what no one can see

 

A horse named "Nowhere"

Is in every gate

Explains the bookie

A sure thing to empty your wallet

Like that too, Brian.

 

Good on you.

(No subject)

“A meritocratic society is one in which inequalities of wealth and social position solely reflect the unequal distribution of merit or skills amongst human beings, or are based upon factors beyond human control, for example luck or chance. Such a society is socially just because individuals are judged not by their gender, the colour of their skin or their religion, but according to their talents and willingness to work, or on what Martin Luther King called 'the content of their character'. By extension, social equality is unjust because it treats unequal individuals equally.” "Political Ideologies" by Andrew Heywood (2003)
