a lighter touch is needed
if the world is as absurdly evil
as it shows itself to be
why join the infernal chorus to protest
what they themselves are a part of?
you can be mildly ironic in your search
for transcendence (if you can even imagine
what that entails...and you can't...) and if idiots
think you're a cynic then laugh them off too
the workings of the universe
are too vast and crazy to take seriously
a lighter touch is more keenly felt
when you have nothing left you care about
except the wonder of what comes next for your nose-thumbing....
