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
