RATIONALISM’S ROUT

Bolted in your golden cage,
the Terrarium that kills nightmares
far, very far from the pillage.

You’ll declare that we achieved little
by subduing our primitive instincts.
Do you feel threatened? It’s nothing.
They’ve manufactured a new drug. Indifference.
The old saying “your death my life” still applies.
Except that clubs have been replaced by Magnums.
Caves by villas. The difference is small.
No, no. No excuse.
Look around. Nothing is betrayed.

The day begins. I know you well.
Mechanically you don your cold mask,
try cleverly to avoid
the questions growing inside you.
The day begins. How will you manage
to deal with it?

You, with a paper sword, stark naked
in the realest truth. Good day!
