the perfect doctrine



the perfect doctrine cannot fail
it doesn't know about failure
and will persist against critique until
it has bound the hands of Reason
and led her stumbling into the desert

the perfect doctrine cannot fail
as its supporters are everywhere
in their ignorance of it
and when they notice it has come
it is already too late

the simplest doctrine
is the best of all
it is so simple it cannot be perfected
it only moves in one direction
it never stops to look back

to think is to doubt
to doubt is to pause
to pause is to collude with the other
those who think are uninitiated
so the doctrine cannot be tested by them

the truest believer
will be the last
he will have destroyed all the others
and when he doubts this achievement
the final bullet will be for himself
