How Long?

God’s prophet of old vicariously cries out in song

“How long, O you sons of men

Will you turn my glory to shame?

How long will you love worthlessness?

And seek falsehood?”

And likewise, a prophet of the new sciences of mankind

Cries out in respect for truth

“How long, O my enlightened brothers

How long will it be well for us

To not admit all that we know to our own selves — then to the public

To not discard the illusions which anchor us in an existence that is but a total distortion of reality?”

–Oh my soul, How long?
