 Faculty Of The Mind: By Michael Ssemakula

Unchained Reasoning

Traveled around and about just by a humorous mistake
Site seeing the re-known first worlds; here and there in
Modernity, opulence, affluence right into larger than life

Certainly, culture outwits them all
For humanity short of civility and diligence
Opens freedom breeding dominions into absurdity

Folks residing in the modern realms
Reach out of their ways to respect tangibles
But disregard to endorse highly of sanity

I prefer culture; for it watches over its own values
In goodness while it essentially deters savageness
But the free world discerns not at least plenty of all

Common sense passes away in small time puffs of winds
Kneeling down to the feet of wealth and its rising might
And life clings onto the next surviving capitalistic idea
As if when riches are reaped; that makes a lot of sense

Law is forged unto all as a dinner roll in each nation state
The smartest of times, beat the system into untouchables
Yet the under-privileged mistakenly absorb all fixed curses

I still prefer culture, punctuated in quotes within reason
