Embrace reality, not fantasy.

Beware woo-woo* which comes your way;
it has you close your eyes and pray
to deities in deepest sky
with thrones of holiness on high.

Watch for woo-woo that’s tarot card;
it enervates and steals your guard,
asserting some cards can indeed
impact the very life you lead.

Shun any woo-woo that you find;
it overcasts a thinking mind.
Distrust all spirits, demons too;
the eye of newt from witch's brew.

Woo-woo can be divining rod,
a horoscope, right hand of God.
A holy book by ancient scribes;
the totem pole of backward tribes.

Be leery of the woo-woo spewed;
an afterlife which is not viewed.
Communicating with the dead;
sheer ignorance and how it’s led.

Woo-woo is to reality
what blindness is to those who see.
So when woo-woo tries coming in,
turn on your heel—run like the wind.
