Dramatic extract

inspection of the innocent
the slaughter of facts in the face of sensation
packed bullies sorted into silk robes
chained their ankles to the heartland

when you take out the slide rule
and try to measure out the logarithmic nature of relativity
programme your loaded gun’s trajectory and travel
assumed physical qualities that can be predicted
assuming all else is true
assuming we even exist
in this room

shifted between feet over
the issue of existence
can it really be true?

but give up before so late
is it time to extract
the parts of your body that are failing
