Catastrophic, catatonic, wet nurse,
Screams spread by sonic breeze like frantic verse;
No one can hear the horsepower of the hearse,
Single syllables punctuate each curse.

Silly season's sessions, vexed expressions,
Traffic merge expletives - scourge ahead;
Another drunken coward punch - he dead?
Can we ignore sources of transgressions?

Why can no one see all the rotten trees?
Why do we fail to smell the rancid fruit?
Tolerate, regulate - more lawyers' fees!
Irrigate well the causes at the root!
