I AM TELLING YOU THE TRUTH
Arabs with algebraic eyes studied all night for years;
They could pull hidden elements from behind the wind.
Always it is man’s folly no matter how brilliant he is.
Kareem, the brilliant at the tender age of six, could translate
The tablets of the alchemist; for this reason I take pains to
Crawl and go over and over all the books I have accumulated.
Most of our decisions are made from reason and logistics; gut
Feelings are relegated to hind sight which was always accurate
From the beginning; Kareem could have listened to his donkey.
Plato wrote from the light of philosopher’s teeth; what do we
Know of truth handed down to us from long ago; we value logic
Too much; a thousand Einsteins cannot glean truth from a star.
Our brains are porous to the truth; every time I hear the truth
Spoken from a rooftop, I know that it is like hearing the truth
From a summit. What is truth unless heard from on high.
Every time I speak the truth a boulder is ground down to make
The Sahara desert. The truth has so many particulates, I wonder
How many languages it would take for all the truth to be spoken.
What if I say “Fuck you, I don’t believe you”. Would that dimish
The truth because is was not palatable to your ears. “Fuck you!”
I don’t care wether you beleve me or not , I am telling you the truth.
