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.

The subject matter presents something I think some people try to avoid or turn a blind eye to. You have true courage my friend and this classic poem displays that.

Amazing! Deep and powerful as always, and so true, of course.

Your opening line is absolutely true
The rest follows naturally.
Hypocrites flourish. Popes and prelates so called celibates pontificate.
Claiming holy authority to decry other peoples actions while carefully concealing their own inclinations

A clear insight....
"With tongues of lies seated squarely in times mouth,
A new world beckons from men in golden thrones,"

Phenomenal line.

"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."

This has such a ring to it, such a truthful ring that leads into other insights on the subject. Such a powerful piece I rather enjoyed. You make a strong point!
