Symptom

Updated on December 23, 2010

Malleable and firm

A rigid compliance

Like smooth, wet sand cupped in the hand

Resigned to its own ideals and

Already fractured in the center

Shape shifting into the mold the hand that holds demands

Wearing out the muscle at the end of the arm of the man

Pleasing in its give

A fight only for show

A marvellous tactic of war

*****

Rough cut the gem weakens the eye

Brilliant, aye, the stony piece

A classic disease

Not fit to believe in the cure

That comes to endure

The whole of man’s desertion

*****

That whole of man's assertion that sees him right

In his path toward dignity

Though his brethren claim he misuses the same

Dignified stance against them

*****

What is holy anyway?
