Default Held High


True humanity begins when imperfection is accepted.
Born an animal growing toward perceived perfection,
all stand on that edge between desire and reality.
There must be value in two sexes, ages have passed.
As time and values change, old ways are questioned.
Everything is imperiled as we redefine ourselves.
But nothing can wait for a safer time to produce.
So as a species the crawl becomes a run to nowhere.

May I offer one piece of advice, wrong or right; when you try to lecture, dictate, cajole, indoctrinate, or otherwise impose your opinion on others there is huge resistance. When you make a point through metaphor and simile and satire and humour, you tend to see a response.

I get your point..

Humanity accepts imperfection
Perceived perfection is introspection,
We have utility, or we have futility,
We have purpose, or we're a circus
of fools, a spool of misplaced rules,

that yada yada

stating one's opinion is not doing anything but stating one's opinion. That is all anyone does here. Cloaking it with verbal games doen't change that. Sometimes direct is good.Some times verbal games are more entertaing and make it easier to get down.
