2023 Ars Philosophica Art(i)fact Poems

Acoustimetics (A Krotas Sketch)

That night they crept into every town
Captured the paintings and books and burned them all down
No words untrue to God and Man
Only censored selections of art and song
Approved by the Council, not inspired by the Muses.
No the pages must be freed of their ideas.
The last thing to consume these words
Was the cleansing fire of the Sword
Of Justice. Aimed at Aspirations,
Inspirations, Aberrations and Abominations.

By Makar
