Twisted Logic.

Twisted Logic.

A Poem by Thomas Fitzgerald

A study if you will, of the minds of those that think they are morally superiour to most of us.


Failing senses and twisted logic are never far from grasp,

With tongues of lies seated squarely in times mouth,

A new world beckons from men in golden thrones,

A mind will fight for freedom to run upon a new route.


Casting circles in sands with no premise of ending,

A finger pushes skin to yield to pressures of lust,

Crowns of thorns are all we need for pious contemplation,

The mirror a looking piece now truth's in the dust.


Make haste, make children, make peace are you mad,

Raping women a pastime for centuries of the popes,

Clearing woodlands like darkness lifted investments,

No river has torrents strong enough to wash away hopes.


Lay back and think of your Mothers embrace now final,

No longer are innocent if such things capable of you,

A sense of being is all we yearn for in the arid waters,

Learn quickly my fellows for heaven waits for a few

I never understand the logic of this world. Each day I get more amazed at the hate and fear. Your poem open the door to many questions answered with kindness and forgiveness. I did many mission to Africa with food, water and medicine. The gifts of kindness open the door to friendship. I agree with your ending. Few will enter the gates of heaven. Thank you for the excellent poem.

Zealots, Kings, Politicians alike rule their worlds with iron fists and lying tongues. we can only hope that real justice does exist somewhere in this vast world. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

i almost feel as though several of these lines can be switched, perhaps you should try that to see what else lies within these captivating lines you've written to see if there's anything more powerful within. i quite like the way this is already, though, and the message you're waving around.

One reason why everyone should write poetry, as you have demonstrated, is painting a picture to the audience. It's been said that the greatest reason to be a Christian is because of the lives of the Christians, but it's also been said that the greatest reason to not be a Christian is because of their lives. I could talk about this, but this is not a debate. I love this poem because you don't just say a message, but also, you paint it with imagery. It's quite awesome really. I've enjoyed reading your writing. Keep it up!

I dig it.

Logic has been dead for thousands of years.
It is just dug up and puppeted around
when coversations get heated.

Felt this one.

I like the metaphores in this. It really brings it all together.

Posted 9 Years Ago

parts were were muddy
my lack and possibly yours as well...
References can be such personal things and
worlds apart really are apart and different though the same.

I understood your intent and chuckled with the doomsday rewarning
but question what we can do - or even should.
