How Low Can You Go?

Insights from "Inside"

you gather your henchmen

close and closer

they

whose quals consist

in whole and part

of oft-shriveled

deified appendages

and an omnipresent

aptitude for grating

self-aggrandizement.

you flaunt

your petulant pedigree

while maggots squirm

on the flyleaf

pearling slime

on the stained

glass aperture

to your fears

I neither sway

nor hold self-same

relegated

as I am

thankless workhorse

inflamed appendix

held in abeyance

bend my back

with toil and trouble

work nimble fingers

to aching bones.

I break not

dear sir

limbo me not

to the lowest

of your lows
