Religion of Conspiracy

Religion of Conspiracy

perhaps the consolations
in the narratives
of the godless
are not enough
for enough
to ever supplant
the narratives
of the god-fearing

perhaps
the narratives
of the godless
will never be
good enough
for enough

perhaps
it's good enough
for the godless
to have their voice
in the contest
as old narratives
crumble
and newer ones emerge
the old
supplanted
with the new narratives
of conspiracies
far worse
than the old

the godless
wishing
their narratives
to ascend
to prominence
in the chaos
when
perhaps
it's the narratives of old
that always
and only
carry the weight
to smother
the newly emerging
senseless ones

the old narratives
ancient
and unfashionable
still better
hopefully
more powerful
than the conspiracies
conspiring
to overthrow them
and drive us
even more 
mindless and insane
than the old narratives
already 
have

the new narratives
of conspiracies
giving us
new
cains and abels
that were rested
long ago
and
the witch burning beliefs
in the old narratives
long gone dull
while the beliefs
inside the new narratives
of conspiracy
are fresh
sharp
and pointed
in need
of tender flesh
for their 
contemporary
crucifixes

with our godless narratives
the promise
of immortal souls
embedded in binary code
or
a rational embrace
of the rationally
unknown and unfathomable
woefully less appealing
far more helpless 
in assuaging the soul
than even the senselessness
of the burgeoning
narratives
of conspiracies

perhaps
it is time
for the godless
to choose
an accomplice
in the god-fearing
narratives
of old
or
trust
in the new gods
with new satans
and infidels 
to punish and purge
in the dawning
of this religion
of
conspiracy
