Pets

Midway through metamorphosis
Mankind chooses no more this
development bent on reason
To live instead in ‘treason’ and ‘sin’
To freeze the seasons in Spring
before adulthood can truly begin

Searching soporific serfdom
Clergy and Crown and how best to serve them
as semi-sentient simians
Plentiful plebeian populous of pets
Given grain and granite to forget the bet
that broke bank of Eden

The battle with gods and whether we need them

Not need but want, it transpires
Please lead us, dear Pontiff
Ensconce us with empires
Too hooked on hiding in our shells
to look inside and decide for ourselves
