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
