i purged the bigot well

    looking back my growing up required
    beliefs adopted well-stamped by motley peers
    whose bigotries installed behind barbed wire
    in the nick by smooth design seduced my ears

    self-deception was vigilantly purged
    those baser measures from reactive ancient lore
    which even now appear though I reject their baser urge
    embedded a self-salvaged sentient core

    so be it! yet I offer to the world
    no bell that academia in its structure rings
    but more a chance with humans to unfurl
    new thrust to truth that intercourse may bring

    listening was a boon whose progeny occurred
    to elucidate a viewpoint from a guest
    challenged! to reappraise the foundation of their words
    many fancy brands of motle are subjected to the test
