Protasis Apodosis

If you read this, you will learn.
Fantasies are bad enough,
But explanations are worse.

If you read this, you might ask,
Why would any human think
Any other human wise?

Look at us—the size of deer
Left to bloat by the roadside,
No longer-lived than parrots

We capture and weary of,
A bit smarter than dolphins
We use for our amusements.

Sure, we’ve a cumulative
Technological impact,
But any one of us wise?

If you read this, you could sigh
That nonetheless we believe
In righteousness, cause, and god,

That we look for their prophets
In all the fools among us—
Or fake some wisdom and nod.
