Dedicated to the ones who by day, play at the art of healing the psyche, and by night terrorize the weak and helpless.

 Daily you sit shuffling papers

offering vacuous smiles at those who trust you to ease their troubled psyches,

Whilst you...  you dream endlessly of golf in Carmel.


 Sneering behind your mask of compassion

  you utter puerile sterile commentary

 at the parade of puppets

droning on inanely of their little woes.


 Your mind... enraptured by its  self-perceived brilliance

  wraps itself around the only thing you are capable of seeing

  your pseudo- academic posturings

  an act of beauty for a febrile mind,


  That knows naught of humanity,

   nor the meaning of love....

I wouldn't spend one cotton-pickin cent with one of these "pseudo- academic posturers". Whenever I'm in a quandry, I can talk to my God and somehow the resolve is given to me. I DO like the "exposure" this poem brings to us! Blessings -

I could picture a psychiatrist sitting in his overlarge leather chair, nodding to a patient's soul wrenching utterances but not really hearing a word of the person's real pain. Great imagery and poem!

Reviewed by . ignis 2/17/2006
These words seem to reflect the way of life of the occult preparing the way of death for ignorant souls. Many scholars in the realm of power that rules this world live concealed lives intermitting the one they allow their victims to observe on the stages where they prepare the doom of their audience that is cluless to the clue of their treacherous play. Words with a bite.
