Complicit

A statue in front of tents  Mike Finn

Who is it

that conducts our lives?

Whose baton

do we follow?

 

Is it the puppeteer

pulling our strings?

Is it the patriarch

Abraham or Isaac or Jacob?

 

Is it a higher force,

universal, omnipotent

ubiquitous?

 

Is it an icon

with hands raised

commanding us to rise?

 

And we acquiesce,

accede, yield

Concede our thoughts

and acts

to a vacuous notion
