The genius of the crowd

di Giuseppe Masala


There is enough treachery, hatred, violence,

absurdity in the average human being

to supply any given army on any given day.

And the best at murder are those

who preach against it.

And the best at hate are those

who preach to love.

And the best at war

-finally- are those who preach.


the average man

the average woman

beware their love.

Their love is average, seeks average

but here is genius in their hatred

here is enough genius in their

hatred to kill you, to kill anybody.

Not wanted solitude

not understanding solitude

they will attempt to destroy

anything that differs

from they own.

Not being able to create art

they will not understand art.

They will consider their failure

as creators only as a failure

of the world.

Not be able to love fully

they will believe your love incomplete

and then they will hate you.

And their hatred will be perfect

like a shining diamond

like a knife

like a mountain

like a tiger

like hemlock.

Their finest art.
