Some outrageous proclamations
Take the courage of the obstinate
So assured of their rightful place
In the halls of legacy

This path of most resistance
Leads to wilful ignorance
A desperate declaration
Of an alternate reality

Where facts are ripe for dispute
And opinions can be truths
When volume is a measure of worth
More valued than veracity

Seeds planted by suspicion
Then fertilised with our doubts
Bloom into a full-grown hate:
A harvest rich in influence

The time is nigh for quietude
An immersion in reflection
A pool as deep as it is old
Wherein silence salves our battered souls
