Large jar containing smallpox vaccine — Unknown Photographer
Lies are hidden
Within the wide berth
Of the El and the Eyes.
Night’s naïve rhapsody:
Echoes, a distant beating drum,
Quieted by the deceptive mirth:
Of ill-rest and diseased conscience;
Allowing the plague —
Hatred, to set-in.
Baptizing with burlap and wool;
Burns — a brackish rite pool.
“I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: Oh Lord, make my enemies ridiculous. And God granted it.”
― Voltaire (Letter to Étienne Noël Damilaville, May 16, 1767) Punishment
