The online archives

will serve as lessons in logic

for our future Plato’s in training.


upon fallacy,

legitimizing evil,

demonizing the good,

the innocent.

Easier to do that

than change.

Human spirits trampled

by intentions always unkind.

Easier to torch the land

than it is to water new seeds.

The Greats plant seeds

of the trees they never see.

Where are the greats now?

Where is our vanguard?

Our democracy?

Can social models not thrive?

Is there dignity in the internet

industry of influencers?


upon fallacy,

and lies about the innocent

whose soul and innocence

burned to ashes

by the gaslight.
