The deceptive gods walk among us
with bodies swollen by pride
and insecurities. The prototypes
of Michelangelo’s ‘David’ with
hair and clothes mugged from helpless
manikins, wade through the foam of
unworthy turds like the life guards
from hell. It’s better to drown than
be saved by these boys, girls. Death
would be a superior suitor.
