Science: The Same Short Thrift With Which You Dismissed - Poem by Margaret Alice

When independent researchers
engaged in alternative sciences
with no mainstream leg to stand on
doubt each other’s findings because
their experience is different

I understand why mainstream
scientists prefer hegemony in
tying themselves to one pole of
consensus perspective; when
you postulate that

Humans come from the Pleiades
while doubting Dr David Zinc’s
claim about the link between
the Pleiades and Atlantis
simply because

He used a medium in his research
while you dabble in Egypt and star
maps, you self-righteously reject
his evidence as based on
unacceptable premises

While you blissfully force your
own idiosyncratic premises - that
the Egyptians told a specific story
in their pyramid constructions -
on the same cynical group

Of scientists out there, they simply
hang you by your own shoe-laces,
giving you the same short thrift with
which you dismissed
Dr David Zinc!
