I saw a new universe begin with a dream,
there was no one else around to notice the difference;

The others, having followed pied pipers for years,
remained motionless, as they had been processed
and were now all plastic icons of Jesus, resting on pallets,
ready to be shipped to China.

They screamed, uttered "Mama," and sometimes
shouted obscenities at the Holy Father,
while in the distance, the occasional bleats of
black sheep told me to stop counting my
blessings and begin noticing the near future.

I looked and saw a white horse, and sitting on
its back was Nothing.

And Nothing told me about his plan:

Nothing will bring order, Nothing will erase our history,
Nothing will make us forget all we've done, and learned.

I climbed on the white horse, and I rode away
with Nothing, heading toward the sunset, where I,
along with Hatred, Bigotry, Greed, Pride, and so on,
perished with the final setting of the sun,
following to the east, the dawn of humanity.

And I'm assuming you mean 'why' not 'how'. The how would be quite simple - that's the catergory it was submitted to.
Rebgardless of which group it is, I was not the one who submitted it; I entered this piece only into Nihlists-Unite and LiteratureAnonymous, but I accept most requests to enter my art into other groups. Whoever it was, I can sort of see where they're coming from with the epistemology.

Indeed. When in doubt, blame the guy in charge! Long live the proletariat!
