Yet again, subconscious works in mysterious ways. Also, hugely indicative of current events.


Compulsive crier, reductive
sophistication: behold
cuckold, in flagrante dickto
morals around ankles.

Evidence, inescapably
handheld: infidelity
scrolled, swiped witnesses
retweeting scandal.

Backlash, slapdash
forum attacks: blood boils
anger, moral turpitude
totally expected.

Extremists, concocting
indignation: bias-based
arguments, personal agendas
lacking balance.

Conclusion, prosperity
unlikely: short-lived
notoriety, inevitably ending
puff of unsmoke.
