Rebellion—for too long the status quo,
is, in our day, a predictable show.
Antichrist irony, absurdity
shockingly daring incongruity
no longer shock the bourgeois, you know . . .
Alone in the temple of glass with a rock,
you’re out of traditional symbols to mock.
Surrealists did it much better than you
and it meant a lot more in ’32.
