Intellectual(Poem)

The Lighthouse of Society

Intellectual
is enslaved to the roaring winds of wisdom
forever obliging to
the king of all virtues:truth
and the
queen of all virtues:justice.

A daring doubter
Dismantling past, present, and future
with the flashes of insight.

They interrogate
the flickering moral compass
of mountebank
and make defiance their default state.

Their heart can combat
the vices of the moral world
with bold silences.

Kickstart rebellions in people’s hearts and minds
with nameless pens and common sense.

You can find them in coffee houses
unknown gutters
or even in high castles.

Anywhere, everywhere
scavenging the glaciated, deceased opinions.

Lighting the cigar of uncertainty and
brewing the bonfire of the gospel.

The role of intellectual is always to forge a new antithesis
from an aged synthesis.

—Drunken Monk.
