Irrespective of the Above
Irrespective of the above, Truth stays enthymematically reachable.
Our best use of narrative remains increasing awareness, enhancing
Rhetoric, providing additional tolerance, understanding, and unity.
All in all, the universal call for storytelling asks of us to realize
The clout conveyed by expressions fundamentals, to similarly
Portion out ideologies so that others might act with confidence.
Innovations over and above banalities, unequivocally (given most
Shuffled semantics), absorb what weve stumbled upon; else word
Plays nothing incredible, is only randomly tossed together motes.
Weigh that quirky articulations of popular, interesting-seeming
Formulations tend to make chronicling customs engrossing, not
Unique. Rather, junctures of crucial basics persist as communal.
Organized discourse, instead of rewriting texts
As philosophical statements, treats messages as
Products and processes, accepts meaning's canons
As precursors to, not results from, human behavior.
Hence, linguistic rubricking can attend multiple
Dimensions of expression's causality. Likewise, it
Develops, modifies, as well as advances, sanctions
That can confront absent objectivity or missing truth.
Actual accountable for legislating, judging, else
Executing prescribed, described, or theorized acts
Visa via a variety of terminologies, shows the dearth
Of responsibility native to standard, shared interactions.
Weigh that Eighteenth Century ideologies provoked
Nations to implore citizens active determination of state
Protocol, to endeavor to bridge instrumental and intrinsic
Understandings of ethics and deeds, to recollect ownership.
At present, in place of culpability, populaces rationalize
Many types of language cues concerning cerebral actions,
Or entangle themselves with reminders about noncognitive
Ones since transindividual goings-on, contrariwise, confuse.
All in all, axiological avowals remains more readily
Identifiable if aesthetic, but not moral, and not masking
Obligations good for' or good of their agents; instead
Of busying ourselves with matters, our countenances conceal.
Whereas it ought not to be worrisome when verbal morphoses
Indicate social disarray, not trouble us when comparable changes
Cannot represent existing, respectable systems for collective living.
Its still burdensome to control answerability for group undertakings.
Until our communitys no longer ill-informed about its rights or
About the coalesced implications of our judgments, were destined
To bumble with morality, stumble along in attempting to fix broken
Applications of doctrines, fall repeatedly, carry on as markedly sunk.
Currently, our culpability seems to move from the lowest echelons
Of public hierarchies to the highest, progressing just barely to fuse
Principles plus politics to action, to provide impetus for legions of
Incoherent decision-makers many, obstreperous pronouncements.
To Raise Awareness
To raise awareness, not to stymie potential conversation
Else, block devotions that impact collective behaviors
Is simultaneously a purported means to new routes
Plus a ghost gun or ten.
Occasionally, persistant attitudes cannot justify intellectuals
Footnotes following plainly pernicious issues. In parallel,
When we neglect convergent motes, languages merely
Ornamental, evolves into nidi.
Some implications of our attraction to provocations
Hide in the embodiments of divergent paradigms.
(We use references to account for realized
And imagined experiences.)
That is, we dont separate words from intentions. Never has
Rhetorics substance & execution been identical. Unctuous
Verbiage, likewise, wont breek fourth walls or yield
Any pernicious character merely because we care.
Its a violation, not a crime, to use interdisciplinary tactics
For discourse. Such fusillades of intensity, such precisely
Focused sentences, such salvos of prost, can awaken
The wargs and the sanctimonious rascals.
The minute our rocketships achieve stable flightpaths,
Were not sessile as long as we yet ignore vaunted
Statements. Our mental dosshouses still yield
Propinquity to boorish others.
After periods of indentureship expire, rapacious managers
Leave our singular universe. Our warrandices around
Government workforces turns blind toward
Nubbins of shared mychorrhiza.
Weigh the rudimentary agencies by which our paths diverge;
Therere no stores, no capitalism, no music on the farside.
Kajukenbos a dream unreachable by masses. Our
Voluble proletarians brave bizes. They cry.
