William Blake isn't a bad dude to riff off of, methinks. Because I've got nothing else today - you know, this is rapidly becoming a disturbing theme - here's a piece of junk I wrote once upon a year. Blake was aiming for profound. I was aiming to poetically bitch my default state of cynicism.

and fills in the cracks where need be, usually pretty deep.
You and I have been here often before,
so walk outside, shut and lock the door, and get lost.You’ve brewed a solution that tastes bitter!

Same as it ever was, Roman, American, asshole,
lend me your invention.
I have a perception it’s not much better than mine.
