In Our Little Worlds

Boxed in tight corners of unreality

We believe we know
Understand, perceive
Things greater than
Platitudes served on chafing
Forces over which we command


Ideas promulgated without censure of
Yet so certain is our
We would defend it, immorally

To the death.

This is fantastic.Applaud! Applaud! My kind of poetry! Love Duncan
All I can say is that it's the best poem I ever read. I hope I will be able to write like that one day.
