Written for: Poets United Midweek Motif~Commitment
“Blind commitment to a theory is not an intellectual virtue: it is an intellectual crime.”—Imre Lakatos
For unity we must commit
to him, they say, while knowing
his temperament does not fit.
On what path will he be going?
They give their support; they must not hear
spewed words of bigotry and conceit.
Changeable as skies, playing on fear;
we thought his views were obsolete.
Scare tactics, lies, and rudeness unmatched,
excused to have the party united.
Allowing that door to be unlatched
will loose a madman. Whom have you spited?
