Such are the vicissitudes in the pursuit of wisdom

“The majesty of inculcated virtue whenceforth,

shall never be sullied by the proud men of action!”

expound our forebears with liveliness and intent,

“For the dark crevice whence the evil propensities of volition arose,

has been everlastingly vanquished, never to regain tenacity!”

Such are the vicissitudes in the pursuit of wisdom.

 

The heart was untainted, yet betwixt the veracity lingered deceit,

An imperishable hubris from which doxa salvaged a prerogative.

For the insidious injustice will cyclically replenish and pervade,

as if it were its birthright, diversifying the aesthetic totality.

Such are the vicissitudes in the pursuit of wisdom.

 

Facades and pretences, subsumed the academy,

facetiously eroding the progressions of thought.

This egregious intoxication, discerned by some,

entailed an Enlightenment, inextricably overcome.

Such are the vicissitudes in the pursuit of wisdom.

 

Some beckon an Absolute, yet the underlying hubris suffuses,

disguising itself betwixt the mere rhetoric to the masses;

an everlasting succession, whereby truth is disdained,

amidst the obstinate souls, indoctrinated, never to be retained

Such are the vicissitudes in the pursuit of wisdom.

 

Once conceived as overcome, now ubiquitous to society,

propagating through the fabrications of sophistic modernity,

“philosophy is dead” such bastards renounce;

This is the human condition, to be suffered for eternity.

Such are the vicissitudes in the pursuit of wisdom.
