There is No Hope of Return

And that is good – Good News [if it be true]
for history is blood-besotted and littered with lies –
guilt-mongering tyrannies quick to label ignorance sin
to sap man’s natural strength and innocent pride
divert his attention to the needs of the present
with sops of celestial rectifications – promises
of unverifiable futures bought with current submissiveness.

There is no hope of return?
O Warrior God who lies in state in heaven –
would that the gates of your gilded mirage
remain locked forever.
