The skeptic and the contemplative

False prophets: the poets of ideology,
distortions, cognitive errors vast and trivial—
all movements, all impositions, save
The Way, The Truth, and the Light—
what was crafted by Socrates, subsumed by Christ,
dissolved by the mystics of every tradition—
even the Truth allies with the tyrant—
tricks of grammars primate and primitive—
we are all the heirs of a transitive species
with one gouged eye and one filled ear,
says the skeptic. Death for you and yours!
says the contemplative disavowed of nothing.
