Clues

Of course there are clues

The old man said,

 Plato’s Cave, Animal Farm,

1984, and others,

But most are too tied up

In their toys and trinkets

To consider what they

Call myths and fiction

From troubled minds

Of other eras,

We perpetuate the illusions,

Blind and deaf to those

Who would dispel them,

Snuggled in closed minds

There is a mystifying

Security in ignorance.
