Of Decadence

See them step
on this third rock
as if trying to avoid infection

See their repulsion
and obsession
as their eyes follow bright lights
fixated, as if nailed to a cross

What life is that
vast decadence
unto thee Jesu,
unto thee”

And feel the blood churn
inside you.
Are you not insulted?
You, that have born
of this world
and was contrived
mixing the fluids
of this thing
that demands too much
of them?

This hideous thing,
almost like a parasite
to those obsessed
with transcendence

or is it the other way around –
that these ideal beings leech
on the body of the world?
