look for the money  
always look for the money first  
then find fury  
disguised as passion  
they go hand in hand  
Laurel and Hardy  
kinda thing  
  
either way  
control is the name of the game  
always  
money gives you unheard of control  
unheard of  
rage is control on speed  
the two, lovers in a parked car  
  
the poor have one thing over the moneyed  
sex, a non-discrimination thing  
rich people have sex,  
the poor have momentous sex  
the underclass use sex as a leveling tool  
the poor have orgasms lasting without end  
it is the only way they can compete  
  
moneyed or poor  
nothing is quite like it is portrayed  
we all know the  
preacher preaches again physical craving  
|lust is the evil of evils  
headline in the paper  
minister caught with prostitute  
  
honesty, is it necessary  
for continued happiness  
although lies come easily  
far better to look someone in the eye  
telling the truth  
even if it might hurt momentarily  
don't allow lies become who you are  
  
the world is dangerous  
are you safe  
if you have intersected with yourself  
intersected? what's that?  
meaning to be as one with your doppelganger    
thwarting danger  
the whole you, foiling looming menace by DNA  
  
so! you will be safe  
because of the intersection of self and spirit  
can you say "above it all"  
you can if you but attend to  
the metaphysical you  
the abstract inner you  
waiting patiently for you to find it  
  
without control  
you twist in the wind  
without physical satisfaction  
frustration forevermore  
conceding honesty is better overall  
brings about intersection of all that is you  
these combined parts of you; perfection

You cover most, if not all the 'bases' in your poem of "Perfection" Mr. Bolton, but this?:
quote:
"the poor have momentous sex" and
"the poor have orgasms lasting without end"
I'm ready to unload all my cash to lower my standard of living and raise my 'opportunities'...along with something else!

Great work!

Pass the Glade if you're going to do that here...

Hey! I really like those lines! I wanna be even MORE poor than I already am to capitalize on all that "momentous" sex!

Okay P.U . . . Whatever the hell happened to poetical license?

Nothing that I know of Mr. Bolton, past having to have insurance nowadays. Sometimes I feel like I'm in a wine press!
