A Treason Of Reason: A Poem on Freedom of Thought

Giordano_Bruno_Infinity

Famed martyr of free thought Giordano Bruno

A Treason of Reason

Starved is intellect in society

where none thinks but all know-

a mindless mantra of archaic ideas

in these great chambers of echo

 

Rampant runs a hapless

homogeneity of thought,

as freedom morphs into a conception

by few grasped; by all sought

 

They wear no chains,

but still are weighed down

For theirs are the shackles they bear

by which they are confined and bound

 

To ponder, to wonder,

to question, to reason-

Deemed by the state of

the auto-oppressed mind

as unspeakable treason

 

Now echoes the clatter of shattering  shackles

An end to this cycle of slave-like reliance

as sustained sedition

confronts this witless compliance

 

Embrace the Insurrection.
