Wise Old Crackling Men

Appalling facts

They present

Twisted maths


Sweetened truths

They represent

Distorted rules


O wise old crackling men

Are you really amused

By the misuse

Of a most concerted abuse


Or is your aggression

Only a deep – seated disguise

Of a tension

So blatantly based on your size


Assertive, arguing

Sanitized girls

Too scared to go out in the sun


Soured season

Is it not too safe

To cage, even into a prison


O same old baffling men

Are you really seduced

By the flick of a ruse

Burning to flames your very own Muse


Or is your peevish pride

Only a means to misguide

Your own lament

Of an eventual demise
