THE ELEPHANT MAN
Dogma or doggerel, unsupported opinions tend to leap from one mind to another, aided only with the flicker of an occasional, approving grin.
“How do you know this to be?” asks the exception.
To wit: “Everybody knows.” or “The word is out.” or “Dontcha get it for cryin’-out-loud?”
And the decision to trust a Higher Power becomes arbitrary,
The idea of Time is reduced to inanity
And the aging voice of experience becomes The Elephant Man.
