Sound of Poems Burned

Sound of poems burned by the state. ~Raquel Jodorowsky

The sound of poems burned by the state is the sound of tyranny. It is the sound of man oppressing a woman, the white race selling the nonwhite into slavery, the politicians levying burdensome taxes on the poor, the threat of prisons for truth speakers. The sound of poems burned by the state is the sound of fear.

Fear is heard most loudly in the voices it attempts to squelch through intimidation, with unjust laws limiting individual expression, by creating an official country language, designating a state sanctioned church. Fear creates insidious laws denying freedom of assembly. It’s for safety they say but, we know, it’s because ideas thrive when shared and those in authority fear the power of ideas.

Fear seeks to limit the sounds of speech out of deep seated cowardice. Cowardice driven by fear because free words will reveal the evil unto itself with the undeniable clarity of an image reflected in quicksilver. And the cowards fear their maggot ridden souls most of all.
