Foolish

Behold a rat who thinks himself a cat
Imagine him whirr, steals in a flash
Him alone his peacock, his ego alone to fan
Foolish is he in his strait-jacket box

Buccal cavity sealed, night soil man’s feed
Droppings full dripping all over
Infantile forever never to grow
Do you know you?

Conquer you, never grown man
Conquer your sly ludicrous pride
You carry more than short
You’re your greatest enemy

Insecurity, self-loathing,
Unusual strength, glassed demure
Suffices not for your mind wondering sheets
Only films separate your travel in circus
