The Absurdity of Judgment

Praise to the criminals who live on the block,
And the lazy-bones shirkers from work,
And the self-involved dilettantes who let morals slip
Too deep in their comforts of pain.
We all look the same:
Same clothes, same town, same eyes,
But oh what a rainbow each follows
And how well the pieces all fit,
Like one family chained
And yet estranged
To learn in freedom.

It's the album of someone I thought I knew:
Old photos from Georgia,
The wedding in Yuma,
Strange postcards from Horsetail Falls...
