We Prefer Puppets Who Hurt Antisocial Puppets

The eremite plays a dangerous game,
Though not as suicidal as running
Amok. Infants and toddlers already

Delight in a lusty, righteous anger
Against a bad guy once identified,
And ignoring the rules is the first step

Toward being ostracized, then hunted down.
It feels so good to pursue a just cause,
To punish and hurt without any guilt.

We rejoice and swing our arms round, singing
And full of the glory of violence,
Freed savagery in the name of the norm.

We have given our senses to the dream
We are good and mightier than we seem.
