nothing binds large groups together like beliefs regardless of whether they are grounded in reality
This shadorma was written for Colleen Chesebro’s Tanka Tuesday prompt this week.
Let’s write poetry together!
When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.–Ben Harper (b. 1969)
Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!

Exactly! I’ve read an article about conspiracy theories. Your shadorma captures that phenomenon perfectly.
