Poem’ish?

We know naught,
we weren’t taught,
and we truly know
aught

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),
we declare.
Domini parenti excelsis,
(honour that which you are taught)
when there is naught else to know.

Ceteris paribus,
(ignore that which doesn’t fit your hypothesis),
allows propaganda to invent fact.
Do we then dedicate the future,
our 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.
