As Big Brother watches,
did you really believe
that the business could be relaunched?
Toss them, God, a circus
(and a love for the poor old maids?):
fame replaces prestige,
the idea the proposal,
the clever the intelligent
and scandal the fruits of labor.
There is no more “adolescence,”
as most adults don’t have the maturity
that adulthood used to require.
Today one has to be “progressive.”
In the media,
talking heads with internal conflicts,
about their sexual conditions,
follow the rules of “freedom of expression”
(and modesty is as archaic
as a handwritten letter).
The forecast is rain all day.
They should have consulted it.
