red satin angels

the red satin
maquillage hiding sneers
and intimidated curiosity;
maybe mice were meant
to be wiser
but nature shut her ears
and said, ‘survival to
those who wish
not to know,
those who know
not to wish’;
illusions of everlasting wealth
will kill us all;
unwisdom is bliss
for the dehumanized;
never question
the wise old men;
prehistoric angels
never lie.

T. E. Pyrus
