Sunday, August 1

Life in modern America,
it is no life for a man
who thinks one is one
rather than part of one.
they chatter and moan
they talk foolishness
they are praised and glorified.
praise from a fool
is like the light of the moon,
reflected light from its source.
thus, a man praised by fools
reflects that foolishness
and, if not yet a fool himself,
becomes so thereby.
how can I live on here?
By not seeking praise,
for such praise, the praise
of the fool, will not raise
my knowledge a bit, but rather
lower it, a contagion of the mind!
Fear it! Repulse it! Destroy it!
