Fervor burns in their hearts,
pure convicting blood
courses through veins
undiluted by any wisdom
in the circle of human dirt,
anti-intellectual zealots
defying their own creed
of love for others
in favor of their greater love
to wear the judge's robe,
sanctions of imprimatur,
intoxicating authority,
perfect righteousness,
the taste of bitter judgments
lingers on their tongues.
