We breathe in thirty second segments
we let the box do our thinking
Intelligence won't last the season
while immorality, and what worse
unrealistic immorality,
is on its seventh run this year.
Some in righteous circles claim
it will get better.
I, not being a fatalist, disagree.
Adam's fall brought it.
And it is providence
not to get better until the Plan
has done its working.
Yet in the end
I'm on the winning side,
So I remain unconcerned!
