Pious Porn

Torn by extreme dissection
 Choking on fresh air and doubt
 Paradoxical vivisection
 Remove one, remove all, heir and clout
 Dining by all the rules
 Etiquette for fakes and creeps
 Give authority to all fools
 The mountain is sharp and steep
 Making us what we were before
 we knew what we could be
 Full of divine reservations
 These fish are climbing trees
 What does it mean?

Channeling inner genius
 from an outward pool of direspect
 Shot down from here to Venus
 Foregone in retrospect
 Using words without meanings
 in a palatte of voices from the past
 Thinking without feelings
 A way for humans to balderdash

Taking what belongs to another who thinks the thing belongs to you
 An endless chain of rot and bother, fulfilled by social needs and cues
 Getting in the best foot forward, slicing off at the ankle scorned
 Faking ‘till we make it, ceremonial air of pious porn
