Ubiquity - Poem by Michael Pereira

I defy elitist foe
By demand for rights to know
The Book of Nature: secret lore;
I'll write it down and say much more,
By analogue in symbolism,
It's my belief in my religion:
Parasympathetic needs,
Or, cancer's cure in apple seeds.
Tree of Life, or, "golden Bough;"
Ubiquitous, I know it now;
My right to think, my right to say,
Your culture's crud, I'll go my way.
Now, I don't ask, I'm telling you!
I'll take the right to my own view!
