Simple Souls

Brute reason, accuses liberal logic of treason.
Character proprietor, intermittently agrees
with anecdotal evidence, indicting seasonally
simple souls that can’t see the forest for the trees.

The benevolent disciplinarian feigned immunity,
a ceremony, summoning, those simple souls:
easy to spot, arriving masked, spreading disunity,
unknowingly, anticipating the lost soul show.

But an eternal soul will not be captured by a Colonel,
handing out gold plated masks to the vainglorious,
dressed as Basques, they were mistaken for fraternal.
What a laugh they had at such an inglorious victory!

Trying to conquer a thousand simple souls highlights,
a risk, that absolutists may never bring victory at twilight.
