Weltanschauung (2008)

by Michaelw1two

 Hysterical mimesis,
 in unison rhapsody life's dead march
hopple thought to action,
 humbly promote a despot's parch
secernate soul from life,
 pare note crossed pelvic arch
urge estate of the realm,
 regnant res publica demarche.

Dibbuk gets minds,
 suzerain elicit excogitation's restraint
woe slaved masses fed,
 truth died, humans sole complaint
shadows weigh man's verity,
 conscience gist's illuminate
souls mull mind demesne,
 reward free thought's abacinate.

Earth's perceptions chaos,
 nations speak in covert tongues
crassitude mankind's conscious nyanza,
 typified by Jung
world is mourned,
 cognizance vacuous of mind's Anschauung
survivals slue lays vapid,
 life from opulence is wrung.

Quest to trust providence,
 from one above to one aneath
results in quantic callousness,
 pity on future bequeath
listless men led by the beast,
 light of love they loath
figurative foible ritual,
 clothe minds in shawl of sloth.

Entombed into greed's venom,
 humanity blindly perseveres
locked in purgatory,
 face living as consequence austere
taught by fiends,
 that life without profit is too severe
peace slain in all men,
 above health, wealth is domineer.
