Ode Against Freud

He thought all dreams had a sexual origin
With penis envy an undisputed fact.
Claiming to be the Darwin of his day
Discoverer of the mind's darkest mystery

Reassuring each troubled psych
With an imaginary interpretation
Of pseudo events.

Leaving his predecessors unacknowledged.
He provides erroneous insights
Of no proven value.

A debilitating ethical nihilism
Couched in psychological mysticism

Was it the coming of reason
Or the cunning of the unreasonable.
