Derided For All Eternity (Corrections) - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

The logical next step – after having Lobsang
Rampa thrash my self-esteem by correctly
diagnosing my juvenile propensities for the
symbolism and ideals rejected by every self-
respecting embittered, cynical, materialistic
empirical realist; through colour preference

I live in tints of blue, lilac and pink – was to
revisit my other favourite; Velikovsky – the
adorable, dedicated, courageous psychologist
who refuted the bigoted scientific idiots of his
age and is slandered to this day; reading how
Velikovsky rightly predicted the emission of

Radio waves from Jupiter, high temperature of
Venus surface and the magnetic field surrounding
planet Earth, also that Egyptian history is out by
500 years; yet they reject his words – made me
furious, extrapolated to blow off steam, burning
with anger directed at the pathetic, brain-dead

Modern-day priesthood of “science” that equals
the Medieval church fathers persecuting Galileo
Galilei: Velokovsky will be honoured a hundred
years from now – as happens to those scholars
who bring in innovations upstaging the current
scientific paradigms; after this rant I feel better

Can continue my quest for the predictions and
discoveries Velikovsky gave to an unworthy un-
believing world of jealous zealots who deserve
to be derided for all eternity
