Therapists have to eat,
They cannot be problems for themselves.
The science of getting even is flawed :
What’s done, adds up to what’s missing.
Monsters make for long term spouses,
Still there’s always a mirror in the house.
And the optics of consent look illegal
When come dinner parties.
If truth happens in Vegas,
Mostly lies come after, either for deeds
Not done or deeds which should,
And that’s how black holes radiate.
It’s not advised to write stuff
In the passive tense, nor is it to write « that said ».
That said, grammarians are nicely side stepping
The issue : modern life is passive.
And the internet is clearer now and made of glass
While you read this, someone somewhere
Thinks nothing of you but will serve
An ad for sex, because sex sells.
I am not against being judged
– Not even being judged unfairly –
Things started to turn ugly with indifference
And too much food on the table.
Therapists got fat, monsters got meek,
Lies are but a moment in truth. Everyone’s thinking
Too little before handing over the verdict,
And sometimes you say « come ».
