unlearning

Unlearning
never stops
the lies I was told
in the growing up
getting an education
reading newspapers
watching the news
not to get all ufo on you
or illuminati
but the lies run deep
and if anybody
maybe this one
was too look you
square in the eye
place a hand on your arm
& say
have you researched
read on your point of view
from a different perspective?
shutters drop down
defences raised
in the blink of an eye
nobody wants a challenge
to their views
and will hate
the seeker
who questions
their values
not that I do this
in perversity
badness
or even fun
more that it hurts
to see others
scramble
for a pitch
on unsteady ground
tho’ I love the certainties
that zeal brings
the barricades to truth
