Of Fool and Tool.

Makes me sick
at either end,

let me tell
you, though I must confess,
in shame,
that I prefer the tippy-top: 

better to be the fool
than the tool.

No virtue
in being the manipulated,
better to be
the con artist. I’ll bear

the internal flagellation
over the length that the mob
would go in order

to subjugate
a defiant slave.

Why must I strive to be honest
against my best interest?
Explain this impulse to confess
to my insanity in trust

despite my clear
and present
madness…
