Poetics Of Matt Ancient - Poem by Matt Ancient

Like a portrait of a king
like a beautiful song to sing
so is the beauty of a fine writer
like a skillful potter
who takes his time
to produce a perfect creation
for art is experience
science is fiction
and religion is illusion
for what is going on
is beyond human understanding
from his authorship
to his lordship
thy sayings are pure
and they are for all
thou art noble
by thee life is made simple
thy thoughts are like
a great spirit
which fulfills a temple
brightening even in the darkness
like a lion in the wildness
searching for his prey
for mankind is gone astray
purity is what he say
that the life we live today
is beyond yesterday
so take this way
for that which will make us strong
is to refrain from wrong
for evil has reigned for too long
this is not a campaign to gain
for the poor to live in pain
this is not politics
this is poetics
some trust in Fascism
others believe in capitalism
and others in racism
but thy words are true
from generation to generation
like an heavenly dew
refreshing all creation
like a shepherd when he speaks
his flocks hear
thy voice is the air
so thy works are everywhere
