The Church of Splendor: The path to every human value is paved with poetry.

This week’s service: The Power of Poetry.

It makes girls swoon and boys fight, and it drives every quest for the next frontier: poetry. And yet it is mocked everywhere, most especially in academic mock-poetry, and it is ridiculed and shunned by the people who need it most: Men.

When men surrendered poetry, they surrendered everything that has ever mattered in Western civilization: Love, family, art, civility and ultimately civil order itself. The people who are not poets are brutes. And it shows.

No doubt you have other things to do with your time, but I challenge you to find anyone who will challenge you quite as thoroughly as I will. I most certainly have not surrendered my poetry, and I aim to show you what I can do with it.
