Why Do They Wear Masks? - Poem by Obed dela Cruz

They realized who they are
And discerned how late the time is.
Awakened by a shofar,
They know it’s not a time of peace.

Humanity reached a peak–
Knowing much, understanding none.
While sundry sophists do speak,
Verities seem to have fled and gone.

“No, this is not what we want! ”
Bawled the real illuminated.
“Revelation does not flaunt
Itself to be violated.”

Thus, they went out to the streets–
And they also hide underground.
Is this the rise of centrists?
A political truth is found.

Once being unknown, secret;
How they emerge this hour to blaze!
Charged by the Sacred Spirit,
Foresights occur without delays.

War is ahead, hence prepare.
Take off ego–the lust for fame.
A new person, now do wear.
Creation is there to reclaim!
