Is Rationality a Mask of Reality?

What leads reality to fantasy, we surmise;
     the saga of the Pied Piper of Hamlyn,
Jules Verne's Kraken, Loch Ness monster,
     from fantasy to reality stories rise.

Nostradamus prophesy, Malthus' theory;
     the Bible - fiction, science, tales, all
mixed up in archives and social media
     where one is led to think and feel free.

Scientific protocol: Koch's Postulate,
     Linnaeus' nomenclature, Mendeleev's,
computer prediction models of today,
     Quarks and Higg's Boson as of late.

To where do all these lead us, we ask,
     after moon landing, soon to planet Mars;
if fantasy a means of escape from reality,
     then rationality is but a fateful mask. ~
