The Sect

              The Sect

Fixed rules, fixed theories; ‘We’re right, they’re wrong’
And throngs of followers – not mixed but fixed
And many nixed
For reasons this or that.
Much forbidden, those exuding wrong ideas excluded.

Independence wrecked, behaviour checked,
The pecking order well defined,
Members constantly reminded of their place in time and place.
Who can protect the member of a sect?
Only the mind, but so well defined and so dependent
Well nigh inconceivable to deflect from sect’s set look at life,
With little chance to be, become the architect
Of his or her own life – a life not owned at all.

The intellect, non-introspective, never to connect with truth;
Present and/or aftereffect vivisected,
Never having had the chance to intra-and/or interject for freedom,
The most tiny insect having more.
The Sect 4 20.2022 Circling Round Ideas; Circling Round Experience; Arlene Nover Corwin

Helpful hints: interject
1 at one point in his story she interjected a comment: interpose, introduce, throw in, insert, interpolate, add.
2 Christina felt bound to interject before there was open warfare: interrupt, intervene, cut in, break in, butt in, chime in; have one’s say, put one’s oar in; remark, comment; 3. say (something) abruptly, especially as an aside or interruption: she interjected the odd question here and there | [no object] : Christina felt bound to interject before there was open warfare.
3..Origin: from Latin verb interjicere, from inter- ‘between’ + jacere ‘to throw’.
