“Because sometimes people who seem good end up being not as good as you might have hoped for.” Jonathan Safran Foer

Such Is The Nature Of This World

Not in a sheet-metal way,
but every junta is happily
into the fabrications business,
catering mostly to the facade.
industry covering over non-conformist
tendencies, critical thinking,
avenues of expansive thought,
playing the bunting safe in mono,
such is the nature of this world,
there is always an abundance 
of mannequins, compliant, willing,
ready to dress themselves in 
manufactured patterns of 
something called truth.
