THE GREAT FOOLS Man, The great conqueror, And the great divider Dispersing power while dispersing nations Like a displaced union, at peace, but at war Time, The great construct of man A great myth that we follow like sheep And praised like a deity It scatters the masses Using sun and moon to exhibit its grip on the world To be worshipped, it is fierce And to stay sacred, it punishes those who don’t abide by its laws Humanity, A species where the powerful are thick, And the poor suffer at their hands Controlled by the myth of night and day, Abiding by the flaws of a social construct

Sean Fredrick Ragoi is an upcoming poet and author who is in love with the idea of poetry. Sean views poetry as an escape from reality, and a way to describe the indescribable. The ability to turn emotion into words is what beckoned Sean into writing. His love for the arts has been present for as long as he can remember, which is a short time considering he is 15 years old. The arts are Sean’s way of express what can’t be put into words. Sean sees poetry as a powerful and indestructible force that needs to be tapped into.
