They swallow indoctrination

As though it were truth,

And respond with dunces,

Eloquent spokesmen

With no thoughts of their own.

Students by the thousand

Babble their creed

Of worshipping the creation

While disavowing its author.

Perched atop ignorant assumptions

And piling more on top of these

Until the edifice reaches absurdly upward

A monument to the urge of man

To create for himself nonsensical theories

Masquerading as facts.

Of those who continually stand firm

And point to ever receding absolutes,

They hurl names and epithets

Certain that their crazy idolatries

Require only passionate adherence

As proof of validity.

But lonely and steadfast

Like a stone sentinel in the mist,

Truth remains.
