Sonnet: Frankly Have-you-on Goes to Heaven

by John Kendall Hawkins

"A friend should be a master at guessing and keeping still: you must not want to see everything."

- Nietzsche, Brainy Quotes (but I've read his entire oeuvre)


Fresh thrown athwart of Paradise, Satan

& Co. landed upside down among beasts

of prayer, titled thwonks and seedy priests

who heard confessions while masturbatin',

and sat awhile seethin', full of false pride,

and conspired to take down apply Eden,

i.e., civilization, by breedin'

a blind love for the Theme from Rawhide.

How's it go? Don't try to understand them

They're dumb shits, bought his corn about knowledge

and spare ribs. Just breed and rope and brand them

X-rated Goldilocks* and her porridge.
