An experimental form: Dogma

NIV Luke 6:37 "Do not judge and you will not be judged. Do not condemn and you will not be condemned. Forgive and you will be forgiven."

What ever belief system you embrace, the words above should be the words by which we all live. Dogma grinds us down as it is imposed upon us.

   The dogma of the agenda of politicalism
   The dogma of religion-ism
  The dogma of condescending intellectualism
  The dogma of ecologicalism
  The dogma of capitalism 
   The dogma of socialism
   The dogma of communism
   The dogma of democratizationism
   The dogma of conservatism
   The dogma of liberalism
   The dogma of anarchism
   The dogma of corporationism
   The dogma of radicalism
   The dogma of fundamentalism
   The dogma of imperialism
   The dogma of sectarianism
   The dogma of tribalism
   The dogma of judgmental-ism

  Dogma is always right…
  to exclusion of all the other -isms.
  Only one dogma can ever be right…
  making all the rest wrong.
  Those -isms men lay down your lives for…
  dying and killing and hating…
  Dogma is the big stick at the gate where
  the guard dogma always excludes.

  Dogma… dogma… dogma… dogma… dogma
  Dogma… dogma… dogma… dogma
  Dogma… dogma… dogma
  Dogma… dogma
  Dog with a bone!
