Socialist Sonnet No. 136

Clear Vision


A veil of ignorance and illusion

All too easily and widely taken,

Vision obscured or even forsaken,

Reinforcing a sense of seclusion,

Being distracted looking left or right.

With the view unsettled and unsettling,

Taking a step forwards is disturbing,

Could be wonderful, there again it might

Be safer and best to simply stay put.

Or maybe cast a glance backwards, because

There’s comfort in a scene that never was,

Better still, perhaps, keep eyes tightly shut.

Human potential remains retarded

Until and unless the veil’s discarded.
