Making About Is Breaking
Comrade, gear up, the dawn is singing- cheer
Comrade, hope in attire is dancing- wear
Fissured horizon lures none save me
Comrade, at me, what silence is winking- bear
Pierce, nay, these earlobes graceful like this
Comrade, what new method is ringing- hear
Off shelves, let my book all be- no worries
Comrade, the pulse witty is writing- share
What else critics dare tell trash- trivial
Comrade, they know not who is thinking- stare
Forms and norms good, stay not, a rebel be
Comrade, making about is breaking- pair
