Indubitable

Indubitable

They doubted once – but learned to shed
The doubts their masters told them to.
Conformity thus moved ahead.
They doubted – once – but learned to shed
The thoughts that were adjudged ill-bred
By those who claimed they truly knew.
They doubted one but learned to shed
The doubts their masters told them to.

Delights of Dissent

The Delights of Dissent

Whenever it’s unanimous, I’m pissed—
And pretty much determined to dissent.
A view, it seems to me, I must resist
Whenever it’s unanimous. I’m pissed
When I detect the smugness. My right fist
I clench, content to be a malcontent.
Whenever it’s unanimous, I’m pissed
And pretty much determined to dissent.

Euclidean Conformity

Euclidean Conformity

The points are placed. You must fall into line.
Conformity is infinite today
And every day thereafter. Ain’t that fine?
The points are placed. You must fall into line
According to our own elite design.
There’s nothing non-Euclidean to say.
The points are placed. You must fall into line.
Conformity is infinite today.

All Hail

All Hail

Bow down before the Sacred Vaccination!
You’ll feel a whole lot better when you do.
Science demands complete capitulation,
And Pope Bergoglio joins the chorus, too.
You’re nothing but an old discarded shoe
Until you’re vaccinated with the crowd
Against the bug that ought to frighten you.
Submission you must now proclaim out loud!
Once you are vaccinated, you’ll be proud
With the pride of the body snatcher horde.
Come on, man! What’s your problem? We’ve all bowed
And hailed the vaccination as our lord.
Your daft dissent will not long be permitted.
Against it an expanding force is pitted.

Polite Refusal

Polite Refusal

 

Joe Biden will unite us. So I’m told.
I am not pressing down your leg hairs, Joe,
No matter how you beg. Absurd and old,
Joe Biden will unite us. So I’m told
By folks who on his blarney have been sold.
Here’s where a free man simply answers no.
Joe Biden will unite us? So I’m told.
I am not pressing down your leg hairs, Joe.

A Good Old Rebel

 

We are told to unite behind Joe.
Such subservience didn’t come slow
In the unmanly hell
Where the RINO types dwell.
I will not act in unison, though.

Free Thought

Free Thought

 

From our free thought let free actions spring!
Let our lives, just like bluebirds, take wing!
On one point we agree:
We embrace liberty—
And we all think the very same thing.

Geolatria

Geolatria

 

Gaia is calling for your worship, boys.
Even the pope has joined the congregation,
So why not you? He says your proper station
Is there with him, immersed in all the joys
Geolatry conveys. Your idle noise,
Your penny-ante ratiocination,
Your skepticism: all is obfuscation,
Just children playing with cerebral toys.
His own brain he is proud to set aside,
Obeying the communal mind instead.
When St. John hailed the Logos, St. John lied.
The Logos as a concept is as dead
As any stinking, tattered shred of hide.
Worship the Living Earth and not the shred!
