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.

it's hard to find a 'logic' without a twist in it...you take big bights in your poetry...in this one i agree with Jaz about the tweaks...you have a rich and confrontational style...good for you

what time and experience has done to the human race. shows the depravity that men are capable of, but then there are men who fight for honor. i like the contradiction between casting circles in the sand and the mirror being truth in the dust. there may be a chance of redemption in the end. i don't believe in telling someone how to write their own poetry.

Love the thought behind this piece. Narcissistic supremacy is a peril to the society... Just run this through a spell check... squarely, beckons, circles, yield, vestments, arid....
Other than that love it!

I believe right-or-wrong is a highly subjective concept and those who think they can play judge and put labels are foolish people...but then it is always ok to fight for what you believe in (really believe, not pretend to)...always keeping in mind "do unto others as you would have them do unto you"

artists are generally differently alligned when it comes to philosophy of life and so this issue is always crucial to them...and you have dealt with it powerfully. :-)

the third and fourth verse are very, very strong, and hooked me in straight away. Perhaps a few tweaks are needed to bring the 1st & 2nd up to the same standard.
Overall an excellent poem. I can't wait to see what it will become.
And, I could not agree with you more.
