Are The -Isms Working 2014

Are The –Isms Working?

 

On this day

Two former popes were canonized.

 

Grounding principles forever good,

Slowly, surely pulverized,

Politicized. Out of the woods

The scoundrels:

Rascals who begin the damage.

Transmutating courage into

Sludgey, smudge.

 

You-name-it:

Social-, Commun-, Capital-,

You name it –isms.

Can they work?

Do they succeed?

In their idealism,

Realism kicked around,

-Isms go to ground;

They fall.

They fail.

Bound by laws inexorable.
