I'm Not Afraid of The Dark

Why Godzilla is Not Very Funny

IN ONLY
THE SWEETEST GESTURES
DO WE SLASH EACH OTHER TO RIBBONS
ROASTING EACH OTHER ALIVE IN EFFIGY

COMEDY
IS THE ART OF VIVISECTING THE VISION OF OTHERS

WE ALL LAUGH IN EARNEST AT
YOUR MORE SERIOUS ATTEMPTS
TO EXPRESS TRUTH, WHICH TO Us
IS PASSE- – ·- —

WE KNOW THE CENTRAL TRUTH IS
THERE IS NO CENTRAL TRUTH,
ONLY
COMEDY CENTRAL
BROADCAST FOR A FEE
FROM NEITHER THE HEART, NOR THE MIND

BUT FROM THE FOUL FLATULENCE
WE DESPERATELY ACCUSE EACH OTHER OF
THOUGH CERTAIN WE, OURSELVES
FART FRAGRANT GARDENS.
