The narrow mind finds its deconstruction
in the narrowness of its recesses,
the shrinking of the passages due to
mindless subscription to popular opinion.
Popular is hardly as popular as is popularly regarded;
the thinking and actions are time-retarded.
The deconstruction of regard
high, low or otherwise, broken into shards
of the sharpest, glassiest, most able-to-shred
the very skin of the consciousness of your Own Thinking.
Own thought is never sold,
though never have stories been told
wherein success was gained through sheeping along
singing that song, the damned popular song.
Never has milestone or breakthrough been achieved,
neither have bloodthirsty knives been sheathed.

Having a narrow mind can lead you up a path off a very high cliff… avoid intellectual deconstruction, don’t live according to popular assumption.
