Sic Semper Utopia, By Brian37

Sic Semper Utopia, By Brian37

 

Entropy screams out loud

At the whims of fraud

100% goes in

100% will not come out

 

Yet the utopia thinking

The scourge of thought

Leads the moth

To the lightbulb

 

I am the driver

Do it my way

Do not question

It will be ok

 

Stalin's garden

Is as bloody

As the Inquisition

And Sharia Law

 

A man in a Palace

Protecting pedophiles

Claims the truth

From high above

 

Childish tribalism

Did not uncover

The truth of galaxies

Or Gamma rays

 

DNA has no politics

And cares not of our strife

Of whom we love

Or whom we hate

 

The universal

Is plain as day

That we are born

Only to die

 

Sic Semper Utopia

Perfection chased

Is futility

When all we have

Is humanity

 

Before is after

Both are the same

Atoms decay

And so too mythological claims

 

The lie of perfection

The futile utopia

Are the rants of tyrants

And insecurity

 

To be a Paine

Is to learn

To boldly question

Like Jefferson

 

To accept what is

And shades of grey

While seeking answers

Objectively

 

One species

Are we all

Give up on utopias

Lest we fall

I agree.

"Theology is now little more than a branch of human ignorance. Indeed, it is ignorance with wings." - Sam Harris

The path to Truth lies via careful study of reality, not the dreams of our fallible minds - me

From the sublime to the ridiculous: Science -> Philosophy -> Theology

Bob, can you correct my

Bob, can you correct my spelling.

"pedophile" is spelled wrong and I meant "shades of gray".

"And so too" not "to".

I would rather hit submit with the errors than to hit the wrong button and lose the poem all together.

Thanks for the complements everyone. Sometimes I hit sometimes I miss, thanks again.
