Ideologies, what a curse upon humanity;
half-truths wrapped around full insanity.
Dogmatic religion, scientism or new age;
such freedom to pick your preferred cage.
Classism, speciesism, sexism and racism;
divide and conquer, the good old schism.
Rule by communism, capitalism, fascism;
faces of fear, colours of one dismal prism.
Environmentalism calling us all a cancer;
for self-loathing is surely the best answer.
Too many to name and all quite the same;
confusion and animosity is a grand game.
Alas, with free speech one risks to offend;
yet so we must, for there is much to mend.
