_________ On FRIDAY the THIRTEENTH _________
Fools to nonsense eagerly lend credence.
Reality they shun; it’s too complex.
Instead vacuity will take precedence.
Divorcing thought from action often wrecks
Any hope of living ruled by Reason.
Yet, it’s easier to follow than to lead.
This laziness makes for a crazy season
Harming our best chances to succeed.
Ignorance we cling to with great pride
Resisting solid knowledge with great strength.
The narrow we respect, reject the wide,
Enjoy old wives’ tales we’ve been told at length.
Enraptured by Tradition’s constipation
Nurtures comfort in stultification.
