Okay maybe too much hastiness
blew on the humanist rant.
Seem to recall Rabelais qualifies
as a humanist – all the renaissance
works hailed humanism’s virtues.
But a bunch of dour bastards did invade
the glade intended for cartoon magic.
Don’t see how dispute can do
anything but remain seated and more
mute than a gagged dispute
could in a nightmare dream of being.
All this does is bolster the fiction
that an earthly utopia
must be – and this must include
democracy, that is if one dares a glance
down the road, dirty as it already is
