Cage Fight

The skirmishes which men of logic wage
against religious dogmatist control,
insure that no one can escape the cage
of conflict known as Science versus Soul.
Evolving intellects include both kinds
of thought. Though opposites, and polar kin,
the goal of Life is to unite men's minds
to warm rapport in perfect yang and yin,
but dubious, if wholeness is at war.
Each man's an acorn soon to be an oak,
awaiting transformation at his core.
Each strives for understanding to invoke
both mystic forces and cognition's peak
becoming universal, yet unique.
