#NaPoWriMo Fear of Knowledge

April 26, 2017 , , , ,

Gnosiophobia is rampant in society, at epidemic level

People avoid facts with conviction that confounds all logic

Belief is centered in a guru or master, omniscient bossy devil

Who defines the meaning of richeousness, of thoughts good or tragic

Obedience takes a heavy toll on believers both private and civil

Since discernment is no longer valued the truth has become obsolete

Don’t take this time for granted, don’t surrender to ignorance in defeat

Today’s poem for National Poetry Writing Month was inspired by a post on I didn’t have my glasses on.    The science march and politics of late have brought facts and education to my mind.  Gnosiophobia does describe the cause of much chaos, in my opinion.  It is time we return to the basics….facts and science.  Tune in to poetry in April at the #NaPoWriMo site.  Find new poets to read and enjoy.
