Would you rather be a mammoth
or a mastodon?
Let me think for a minute.
Let me be your mandate.
Let letters fly in pairs
around the spires of Paris.
Let my lips, two pilgrims blush
Truth vs honesty is all I hear.
Let the leaders stonewall.
Let black sleet tuck night in.
Let life consume us,
a friendly fire licking the ceiling,
growing hungrier by the second.
