Being tender can be tough

Guileless reality awakens
a sentimentality
as causality comes into play
with fear of finality
not far away
quantity is produced as
quality is reduced
monopoly clears the playing field once more
hieroglyphics are the key to a culture long gone
if you can find the stone
chiropractors crunch bones before dawn
bringing relief to those who are careworn
while genuflectors bend their knees in compliance
with innocent charm
priests are de-frocked because of their harm
building inspectors give warnings in defiance
of crooked construction bosses who cut corners
out of habit
and reflectors on the back of bikes can limit
losses in the lack of evening light
astronomy on a starry night can leave you wild eyed
gastronomy is a science and a hobby to keep you alive
while the deans line up for a cap and gown ceremony picture
in the Concert House lobby for the true and the snobby
cultural and social hegemony prevail throughout the land
and economy is reflected in the country at strawberry stands
are they really Swedish at that price?
sitcoms in re-runs keep us laughing on cue
framed diplomas are hung on walls placed in prime view
acrimony leaves a harsh taste in our mouths
parsimony is the path to follow on our way south
where enough is enough
and some find that being tender can really be quite tough
