Travel Brochure

You'll most likely need a sherpa

for the foray into that

mountainous terrain known

as the Land of Disillusion. 


When there, make certain

you sidestep the cadavers 

of notions once fondly

regurgitated because innocent

brains were indoctrinated. 


Disclaimer: there may be no elixir

to bring back like in every 

decent hero's journey, other

than a clarity you might hesitate

to christen worthy, as it challenges

far more than it sedates.


Oh, and one last thing: when

choosing a guide, do

take special care; try

the skeptic or the cynic,

but please avoid the nihilist,

for he just might dump you there!

I liked this very much. I'm of the opinion that a true believer is your best bet to reach the summit with. Not a Dr Pangloss who pretends the journey is a sinch.

I'll remember to avoid the nihilist. Will a fatalist do?
