Food Chain

It makes me nervous doing business with an idiot,
recently voted dickhead of the year.
Just make sure the paperwork’s in order.

Sometimes I think only death
will put an end to your addiction
to studied stroppiness.

Forget the search for “perfect silence”
and the “Empire of the Imagination”.
Permit me to tell you what it’s all about:

Life is a food chain in which
some things get to eat other things,
and you’re not the fisherman, mate,
you’re the bait.
