to fear institutionalized authority
is to have no understanding of the laws and conditions
their determinations and implications
and to a greater extent, even one’s own capabilities and constraints

    Maybe I’m reading this all wrong, but…

    To fear institutionalized authority
    Is to recognize that no institution possesses
    A body and or a being
    And so also lacks
    Understanding or a care
    For the capabilities and constraints
    Of those individuals over which its
    Authority is exercised

    The only power which alters
    The course of an institution
    Manifest when an outraged public
    Calls to account
    The institution’s directors
    Who stood by
    Allowing the institution to take
    Its unfeeling path

    And this power exists
    Only in societies
    Which fear institutionalised authority
