Zombification

(Poetry Scales 27)
“Truth always rests with the minority … because the minority is generally formed by those who really have an opinion, while the strength of a majority is illusory, formed by the gangs who have no opinion.” –Soren Kierkegaard

come shuffle up to the herd
we haven’t a clue or direction
but we’ll get there together

ignore that nagging little voice it’s
scary ‘cause it leads away
away from the comfortable crowd

stop all thinking on your own
consume our prepackage group-think-brains
don’t seek a goal or the truth
ignore sounds on the periphery

we’ve decided real beauty
is lost in our sad absurdity

assimilate everyone,
everything into no certainty
no assurance but into
our foolish staggering company
