Victory

Progress has won with religion trailing behind, out of breath

now on the verge of death with only the muse in metaphor to sat

“What’s done is Done.”

And with her promise to man – a vow to fill his cup

once his brilliance does erupt

for every damn, uttered beneath the silver moon

by the sigh of the candle flame born from the grunts

 of toil spurned onward by his iron will

 

In the end our Lady progress will withstand

 the trifling barriers erected by idolized crutches

psychological impediments

deterring the right of greatness, the potential of man

 

But if her campaign is to be a success

she must first strike Plato,

casting his so called wisdom into the pit of Acheron.
