Shame is a rotten thing,
It is a termite
Upon temple beams.
Shame demeans us;
This sensation is an invented hell.
Give shame meaning,
As though it were
A malignant — yet tolerable — side effect of society.
Shame is not benign, nor are you.
Recognize all flagrant propagation of this wretched manifestation.
If you do not have the willpower to kill a pest
Please keep the thing in a fucking jar
Only show it to your least-welcome guests.
