Who are we to scoff at Fools?
Deluded, snarling, breaking rules. 
Snow queens, set to underwhelm,
sit frozen in this blue-lit realm. 
Fingers draped in strong, gold belts,
(To cover up the zits and welts).
Countdown to those out of reach;
Sweet entrails cling to pits of peach. 
They need to see it: friend or neighbour. 
Photocopy, echo chamber. 
Send. Refresh. We’re living here. 
Eyes are vacant (or so I hear).
So share a tonin, or two, or ten,
To lock out noise, and us, and them.
