Life Is a Language Barrier

Priests and prophets often aren’t
Terribly fond of poets.
Will you follow the poets
Into hellfire, faith?

Tyrants and philosophers
Often like us even less.
Will you follow your poets
Into the gulags?

Science has no need of us.
We’re good for quotes; otherwise,
Scientists couldn’t care less.
Why follow our ignorance?

We compose what can’t be said
By those who can’t raise the dead.
