Some Laboured

Some labored over the obscene
definitions and particulars
when the trapeze artist was not falling
but afloat in the sky Lucretius wrote

the machinations a breeze if Tacitus
ordered, which Cicero then described
but then who to decide
the imporntant, or significunt in a

slack society of drooling chins,
the bribes of the self-deceived
revolving around their own black hole
no longer circumscribed but defined
