Please, won't you join me?
Let's walk hand in hand to a future full of similarities.

Deliriously trying to mole oneself into a perfect paradox. 

Where nor up, nor down, takes you to an unfamiliar destination.

Shall we walk slower, to allow this all to absorb? 
Or will you stand firmly & take in no more than you can eventually swallow?

Cruelty, isn't it? We allow this to all be.
We ignore the shame, listing others by name.

    Ok I was heading in another direction and the name caught me. I didn't have to slow down to absorb it, but thanks for asking. There is a strange paradox isn't there a thin line between civility and hipocrisy. I guess really that just comes down to intention. To mole onself into a perfect paradox, nice equivocation if I may use a logic term, in logic it's a fallacy, here it's just damn good sarcasm. I like this poem as well.
