No no no,
Please, continue
You’ve evolved to be so good at it
Crushing curiosity
In the name of devotion
Blindly giving away your faith

No no, I get it
You want to be loved
Embraced and held
You want me to feed you Life
In tiny understandable bits
Crushed in a spoon

No, the universe is full of it
Disgusting wonder and abominable awe
Just so you can turn away from it
Misinterpret and mistrust
Invent your own

Oh, If only you knew
I really was playing dice
With the universe
And out came you

Yes, it’s about time
I start saying no.
