Our current narrative
About the demise of factual Truth,
And the proliferation of alternative facts,
Indeed is an insult to reason.
We live through a, XXIst century,
Organized, dislocation of speech,
When statements are disconnected
From their opposite ;
When black does not imply white, and
Self does not imply others.
As if there was now
A splitting maul
Striking right at the center of logic,
A wedge held in place by everyone,
Wicked as virtuous.
And we have not been paying
The third empire is that
Newly opened place
Between true and false.
