Lines materializing not on paper
can actually drag a brainless pencil.
Ants squiggle around your Adidas-shod foot

but another two’s love sees truth in pulp and ink.
A stitch in time purportedly saves nine,
but it’s always never enough for the cat’s tenth time.
The man down the street donates his time to charity,
but do you know that he’s got lots of young dirty in his HDD?
If decisions are made with clear-cut divisions,
then where is the division and the decision?
I am what I am,
but am I really what I’m not?
