You get a lot of truth seekers these days...
They are a motley crew....college dropouts, white collars, wily bureaucrats, impoverished have-nots....
They line up behind hardline, bloodthirsty pseudo-intellectuals...
They all roam around with their loaded AK-47s, empty heads and raving voices..........

These folks kill and die each day, waiting for some kind of divine intervention...
These guys are xenophobic maniacs; they need some kind of light at the end of the tunnel for sustenance...
When they do not get that light, they create their own inferno.....

Shall the Red Sea part again? Shall Jesus walk on water again?

Truth....my friends...can be edited in software and can be uploaded by a bored teenager in social media....
Truth are the lines of blasphemy in newspapers running for profit....
Truth settles as greasy residues in oil pits and in the broken Molotov cocktail bottles....
Truth are the gouge and bite marks, on the raw skin of an 8 year old girl....
Truth is the heavy load of Trinitrotoluene in a 12 year old schoolkid's backpack....

Truth can be preserved as virus in jars; as payloads in missiles...
Truth are the meaningless massacres and carnage in the name of God....
Truth comes out as slurred words from a stoned sophomore's mouth along with out of tune guitar chords.....
Truth lies gathering dust in a struggling writer's cancelled drafts....

Do not seek truth...O my readers...in speeches and scribblings; structures and scriptures....

Truth is a commodity, like any other; a harlot, you can buy and defile for money....
Truth are stifled questions....millennials of asphyxiated whos, whens, hows, wheres and whys....

Truth....my friends...is nothing, but recurring lies....
