Where Is The Rationale? Poem by Qiniso Mogale

Where Is The Rationale?

Rating: 3.5


Nothing makes sense anymore
All seem confused and disoriented
Priorities are misappropriated
Illusions have become facts
Fables have become true stories
Lies have become truths
Black is said to be white
White is said to be black
Where is the rationale?

In churches fortune telling is now called
prophecy
Acts of magic are called miracles
Darkness is called light
Comedians and entertainers are called
pastors, prophets and apostles
Self serving doctrines are called the gospel of Jesus Christ
People are prayed for at exorbitant rates
Where is the rationale?

People are moving backwards but
they believe they are moving forward
People are laughing but the situation
suggests that they should be crying
People believe they still have ample time
but the reality is that the final hour has come
Where is the rationale?

Very well articulated poem taking the subject to its logical conclusion quite convincingly. By and large, today the world is being driven by hypocrites & hypocrisy. Thanks, Dear Poet Friend. Illusions have become facts Fables have become true stories Where is the rationale?
