    I stand here
    Locked and loaded
    Ready to spew forth madness and mayhem
    In this “ought’a be condemned” society
    Of “don’t ask me”s

    But the trigger is on safety
    So, mayBE
    I’m not supposed to unleash destruction
    But knowledge instead

    So, I reload wisdom
    That my “ism”
    Might go forth across nations
    Destroying ignorance and stupidity

    People who are stuck in a world
    Where “May I please”
    Still has a hold over many
    People justifying phrases like
    “Please, sir, if you would”
    by claiming it’s for the common good

    My “ism” begs to be made
    Manifest
    And, yet,
    It is ALL who rejects my “ism”
    In favor of
    Racism
    Narcissism
    And so many other “ism”s
    That leaves me
    Wondering
    Whether humanism
    Should be abolished
    …in favor of
    animalism

    TRUism

    word.
