is a moral lesson
(you would do well to listen)
what does that mean?
none of us have
the slightest clue.
(look it up) (I don’t want to) (I’m not an encyclopedia)
you’re learning something
it’s building you like cellulose
(good or bad?) (why does it matter?) (it’s all the same in the end)
you are more than your cells
you’re more than words that are
recorded in the essays you did during lunch
you are part of this story too
until it’s no longer interesting and is
(why stories?) (because morals are in pages, not hearts) (nothing is in your heart but cells)
this is a society that
gives your parents a fertilizer of
ethics and rights
to pour on the embryo of yourself
(if they can afford it) (you know the economy,) (always changing)
this is a moral lesson.
