When the notorious Trojan Horse

of unexamined prejudice

stalks past the unsuspecting

gate-keepers of reason,

there is hardly anything

that can be done

to staunch its onslaught

upon the citadel of enlightenment.


In the grand sweep of history

the tendentious intellect

selectively finds the particularity

to derive generality-

the classic case of historicism,

the past being a predictor of futurism.
