Knowing When to Look Away

The best
social commentary
is no
social commentary.

 

Cancel
core values.

 

Spy on
them under
a microscope.

 

Watch how
they squirm
for relevance.

 

Notice how
they’re devoid
of apertures
to let
things in
& let
them
out again.

 

Pay lip
service to
core values
& close
your eyes.

 

Paint open
eyes on
the closed
lids.

 

This way
people will
recognize you
as one
of them.

 

Now you
can club
baby seals
with impunity.

 

Now you’re
someone who
knows when
to look
away.
