Battling Books

by Kevin T. McEneaney
Thu Dec 29th, 2016

Cinema, religion, and poetry

are all a form of fiction like novels,

painter's portraits, music, philosophy.

Well-written history alone travels

with a solid factual foundation:

collected, analyzed, categorized.

Yet historical interpretation

proves that everyone's opinionated.


Books are arrows of imagination,

but when taken over-seriously

and pressed into the battle arena,

speak as weapons of disguised contention.

Appreciating many books deeply

need not become obsessive mania.
