Stand guard to truth

Voltaire said it best and we better take heed “Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities”.

Take heed;
for when whomsoever’s evil need,
makes the unjust and terrible happen,
leading to even more vicious deed,
guided only by a greed they boastly batten,
and a perverted glee with every life they blacken.

Stand guard
to the integrity of truth,
based on empathy and compassion.
Reject the slime that’s so grotesque,
and which today seems,
everywhere to be,
so arrogantly in fashion.
