Creative thoughts and visions once held sway
In the minds of Blake, Yeats and Mallarmé,
Their words were passageways of mystery
But are sadly confined to history.
New Age culture suddenly reigns supreme
To feed those who broke from of the old regime,
Wrapping new clothes over a dead body,
Changing the tone of the same melody.
But neither is the truth but sheer nonsense
To those who claim to have intelligence.
Ever since the Age of Enlightenment
They’ve left the cave of disillusionment
And since applied a rational mindset,
Then all received wisdom was soon reset
On what we see and hear and feel,
Disproving all superstition with zeal.
The sacred rites and prayers that once impressed
Had the brains of naive folk long oppressed,
Now the only practice which makes men free
Is logic and science in harmony.
