A city full


A city full of idols
is a city of idols
and the business of idols
is big business an industry
employing thousands to serve
and bow, to chase and worship,
to bend the knee to the creed
that wood and stone and paint
control all things.


We are too educated and insightful,
too learned and informed to bend
the knee to wood and stone and paint;
instead we worship knowledge and
education and celebrity and power
and the pixels we hold in our hands
and the images we see in our mirrors,
too intelligent and advanced to worship
wood and stone and paint.

Now we are superior
to then
aren’t we
