The Hazards of Dogmatic Fear
Deep within your unconscious
exists an ancient prison
where a solitary vigilant denizen
called dogma
occupies the darkened recesses
silently seething
relentlessly preying
upon rational thought
emerging once you’ve consumed
all of the
fallacies & propaganda
victoriously it claims your psyche
now the only thing you see
on the inkblot in your mind
is fear & self loathing
leading you down the road to
total submission
