Offbeat

May 7, 2012

I am mute before the wise men

who reverberate in tones of clarity

 

I am wise before the mute ones

who oscillate between polarity

 

I am appalled by the leaders

who above all allow disparity

 

Verily, Borges was right:

it has been a history of iniquity

 

Right also are the sages

for the truth is in simplicity

 

The philosophers are blind

for like faith in rationality

 

Nothing worth knowing can be taught

life proceeds along in melody
