Your crystal ball is a sham:
a charlatanís attempt at deceit.
I know my future, and it lies
behind a veil of smoke and mirrors.
Magicianís tricks and slight of hand
cannot dissuade me from my fate,
and such is your definition of
preparation (installation, propagation,
Society, do not insult me:
I refuse your defamation;
Dignity, do not abandon me:
I rely on your inspiration.
Mr. Precedent, the cynic,
will never discourage me
because His crystal ball is
a sham.

sham called the world
I like your poem, its quite a refreshing opinion and goes along with some hinting at fate. Fate is fickle, I like that you incooperated the theme.
Much love...
