The Emperor’s Old Clothes

That point, that instance,

I know I should care,

I realize it’s important; it matters so fully

Right now, right this second

The shaping of events unpassed

Intransigent prejudices warping and twisting;

ever demanding adamancy

Purple hair and tattoos to match

Parade waves and teeth too white

Is it spring already?
