Herd Instinct…

*

Let every man aspire to a Silent Citadel in the sky,

and there live free from the crowd.

Eventually, if he wants to learn about himself,

he will have to climb back down into the throng.

*

Once here, what can he hope to glean from the squeals and grunts,

the coughs and splutters,

And all the dark muttering?

*

He will need a well tuned ear,

and a steady eye,

to pierce the irony of these cynics.

*

Cynicism is that form of expression by which the ‘common man’

finally approaches truth.
