They treat Life like some erotic game.
Shaking and junk-sick, minds askew,
They know no splendor.
Most have never had a milkshake,
Much less attended a tea.
The silent nights breed no verse,
For they have not the fertile minds of poets.
Their sleep is mundane--
Barren minds unaware of the clamour
Of trains and screaming sirens.
