Written for a challenge on another site requiring the use of 10 specific words. The words were fallacious - fertile - fickle - fiend - flexible - force - frankly - front - fury - fuse. I did take some liberty with one word but I don't think I'll be sent to my room for

Leaves of Ignorance

Seeds of hate and judgment
Sown in fertile soil of ignorance
Will thrive and the sap of flexible
Truth will rise from fickle roots.
Leaves of fallacious righteousness
Adorn far-reaching branches and
The force of contempt feeds in
Fiendish fury upon those who dare
Walk a different path, up front,
Unashamed. Is this what fuels
Anger and lights the fuse
Of indignation... this acceptance
And confidence?

Will this ever change?
Frankly, not likely....
Because the leaves of ignorance
Never fall far from the tree.

Good job on the challenge, Myrna! The last two lines reveal a sad but eternal truth:
"Because the leaves of ignorance
Never fall far from the tree."
Well done!
