Today's poem is by Nick Courtright
Dogma, from the Greek, means "that which one
thinks is true,"
but less literally, and less terribly,
it just means opinion. We've been advised
to shy from it.
I Picture this: a dog barking, but its bark
and all the shouts
out the window at it to
quiet the hell down
won't get the job done.
This is dogma
I'm talking about, so watch out.
It'll keep you up at night, and if it doesn't then maybe
you've lost your hearing.
