They don’t accept anything blindly
proof demanded unabashedly
can one question shamelessly who sired who?
Isn’t faith bedrock of survival?
Faith is acceptance, trust, regard
to live harmoniously,
not to harm the armless.
Trust in elite extinct now
‘malcontents’ on the prowl!
Acceptance allowed not
litmus test most in demand.
Declined long ago regard for the deserving
blame-game experts delight in branding!
Rules many, rulers too many
rueing folks know not reason
cursing timidly tampered lives.
With none to rein in, rogues on rampage
suffering suffused vessels
look for a lighthouse to steer clear
from onslaught of unforeseen typhoons.
Shore unknown, sailors strange
yet the tower saves lives
pulse of beam ensures safety.
Illiterate fishermen, seasoned sailors
trust the light that cheers the spirit---
clowns yearn for crowns
trained to slander, befriending betrayal!
