Change Is Good

Change Is Good

 

 

Out from your store of wisdom, you produce

a lovely sermon on how change is good.

But with the facts you’re playing fast and loose

to shield things in your backside’s neighborhood.

Acknowledge now, O liar, as you should

that every instance here of alteration

is a sign that your head is made of wood

and that you’ve botched a simple calculation!

Acknowledge that your faux-sage peroration

is just crap — and irrelevant to boot!

The more that you rely on vain quotation,

the less you can convince us you’re astute.

You’re what you need to alter:  just get out!

That’ll be an improvement safe from doubt.
