Admirable Constraint


 the pentecostal fury of lemmings

knows no tell-tale badger’s libido


limited though it might seem

to the unannointed masters of destiny

drenched in penny-pinching flurries

of modular polarity


their clandestine stentors tense

the silence about blatant nodules


as rumor, as theory, as truth

transcends the furry unknown

whose pastors recite chapters perverse

to primate storage stations


safely rations currency

of the hybrids in their midst
