The Truth

The Truth

The truth, we can’t handle the truth
We neither understand it, nor seek it out
What was scripted so long ago
Is now the vestige of folklore
Stone tablets transformed to pharmaceutical linctus
Hieroglyphs scarred by angered graffiti
Papyrus has taken the form of a comic book
Gospels converted to poetic blasphemy 

The truth has not forsaken us
We have chosen to live without it
The truth speaks to us throughout the Heavens
The sun glistens to remind us of Creation
Planets wind as the planetary Pretorian guard
The Milky Way slumbers as God's Goliath
Cosmic protection for fools
Naked is the truth about us, clothed by clouds.

Thank you,
Joseph Pede
