Don’t make rules
for how you think
‘cause then you won’t
think at all

Don’t set you mind
into patterns now
let experience
be your all

Do not allow
the cloud of fear
obscure your sight
please keep it clear

Don’t make rules for how you think
Into smoke of darkness sink
fading out, the shading ink

All truth is ridiculed
then violent opposed
then seen as self-evident
everyone knows

Do not condemn the words of another
‘cause they differ from your own
Do not contradict and confute; nor believe
But weigh and consider alone

Any victory gained
by authority
is a hollow victory won
Better and warmer to live in dissent
than agree with all thoughts as they come
