the after-hours party in the church
broken up by ministers stern with handcuffs
friends and seventh-grade locker partners
lined up against the wall
spaghetti mob mentality
all want to give BIG BROTHER
a BIG BRUISING black eye
but who will swing
both ways when the time comes
to unsnap that snap, and stray
from the spread sheet cell.
Whoever has lived long enough to find out what life is, knows how deep a debt
of gratitude we owe to Adam, the first great benefactor of our race. He
brought death into the world.
-- Mark Twain, "Pudd'nhead Wilson's Calendar"
