We know naught,
we weren’t taught,
and we truly know
The very dominant paradigm teaches
there is nothing we oughtn’t.
If first proven profitable.
For profit enhances the profit,
even of those it kills,
Extremes trickle down
Ex culpas (not our fault),
Domini parenti excelsis,
(honour that which you are taught)
when there is naught else to know.
(ignore that which doesn’t fit your hypothesis),
allows propaganda to invent fact.
Do we then dedicate the future,
to the ideal of progress,
In the pursuit of n’erending profit?
Unlearned we declare,
The unbiased goal…
ecologically sustainable development
whenever proven profitable.
