There Will Be No Ark

intelligence is not a levee
it grants no protection
from the storm-churned sea of irrationality
belief undermines intellect
erodes far below
where once there was solid ground
a loose soup of sediment sinks facts
swallowing the evidence
out of their sight
out of their minds
fear is the hammer
faith is the anvil
the sword forged is destruction
to hack away the walls of reason
stab holes through the dike
let the mad waters rush in
to cleanse the land of science
leaving only flooded ruin
it is coming
enemies of logic are the rain
now is antediluvian
the aftermath awaits
