With nothing in the highest, we are gods
unto ourselves; do you know how that will go?
We are a generation without sexual ethics
and it’s been devastating to everyone I know.
“Go forth and explore!
Proudly propagate your void, with your friends
and some people who don’t know your shoe size.
Don’t worry about the wonder or the weight of power.
Nothing matters but the element of surprise.
Be unafraid to let it in!
Someone else’s anxious, greedy, steaming cauldron
will not spill as you’re knocking yours into it.
A little stain won’t kill you, and time will wash it out.
The potion smells sweet, so if you want it, brew it.
If it makes you happy!
That’s logic not undone by shame or conscience
or some religious dogma of what gives you humanity.
That’s freedom to be enslaved if you so choose
and every chance to be toy, tool, or commodity.”
But in truth we’re neither gods, beasts, nor machines.
We’re merely fragile children with more room to grow.
We are a generation needy for sexual ethics
and the healing it would do in everyone I know.
