The Blindfolded Man

The Blindfolded Man

A Poem by Cameron Koontz
"

My view on current religion

"
Walking in a line
The blindfolded man
Followed his kind
To the edge of a cliff
and
falls

Wishing in pointless pursuit
That hope is there
And a place with
No worries and care
He 
Calls

Out to his high-flying
Brethern that climb
High in knowledge
That he calls a crime
They 
watch 

As the man takes 
His leap out into
The valley of faith
A dark, wet slough
He
drowns

Because he is not 
considered worthy by
The Powers That Be
And they watch him die
they 
sleep

The laughing fat man
With his eyes long
And his servants suffering
As they bang a gong
for
him

The hateful god-tyrant
With the vengeful prophet
Threatening cartoonist
With violent outlet
he 
burns

The so-called Father
With the over-sized ego
Punishes his loyal ones
And hits a new low
of 
love

The multi-armed freak
Who worships bovine
And causes his/her people
To slowly lose their mind
for
what?

This is the fate of
The blindfolded man
Led off a cliff
That wasn't in his plan
The
End

Many blindfolded men. Led to the slaughter and don't know it is the end. Nice flow of thoughts led to the strong ending. I tell people. Don't be blindfolded. See what is coming. Good or bad. A very good poem. Open the door to a good discussion. Thank you for the excellent poetry.
