Title: Renunciation attempt
Post by: dlp on July 18, 2018, 08:14:57 AM
 

Never shall I wade,
Never shall I slip.
Into the depths,
Into the ooze.

Into the warm anesthetic flow of self ingratiation,
of fetid tumescent narcissism.

Nor shall I venture into the arenas;

Into those meat-rending chambers of razor- tongued, blunt- brained image brokers.

Rather that the screeching, grunting warthogs and  jackals of the underworld
should feast upon my stinking flesh.
