Delusion

 

Some may think
it
very odd

that much
of the
world

is built
on
fraud

delusions
of
grandeur

dreams of
god

the know
nothing
frothings

of the no
better
than sod?

*

Whence myths
embrangle
the mortal lot

Or could it be
but simply
that

for some to
plod
others must
plot?

*

Be all that as it may…

Deep enmeshed in myth and delusion, we pride ourselves as homo sapiens sapiens, the sovereigns of all creation.

Just as well we take ourselves so very seriously.

For , far as I can glean, no one and nothing else in the Universe does.

*

But, yet I wonder.

Why do we bother?

Why such profligate expense of mind and muscle?

Here for the nonce, gone in a flash.

And still, the hubris?
