Val enjoys writing rhymed poetry with a valuable message in it.
Oh, what a tangled web we weave...when we first practice to deceive.
-- Walter Scott
Under the umbrella of modernity and sophistication
we feel protected from an overly keen critical eye
but it's all syndrome of collective ego inflation
while the sheeples keep buying every lie.
The origin of man still unclear as ever
with nothing but theories parading as facts
alternative sized down to hobby-like endeavor
mainstream keeping quiet about disturbing artifacts.
Medicine ignoring the mind-over-body effect
still reductionist, seeing you as bio-machine
while it's so obvious, undeniable and direct
that mind is the crucial actor on the scene.
We are screaming at meddling from abroad
keeping quiet about all that we do to others
the one-sided story so hypocritical and odd
sticking our nose all around never bothers.
Millenia of religious love-oriented preaching
without an impressive result to be seen at all
along with all other highly moralistic teaching
and we're still playing deaf to conscience call.
Everybody knows about politicians' lying
it's household truism so commonly known
but all of that deception we are still buying
like some ultimate truths carved in a stone.
Holocaust is saddening, eye opening story
but seventy million died in that idiotic war
so let's remember them all in their glory
unrepeatable stupidity they all died for.
Now WHAT would it take to open human eyes
so tightly closed almost making us all blind
to discard all deception, fallacies and lies
to evolve in our heart, and in our mind.
