O my my, O my yes
Noblesse Oblige: point out the inconsistency
in my biases and belief –expose the contradictions.
Turn up my ignorance Flaunt the foolishness
of my prejudice and conviction. Mock, scold,
and ridicule the relativity of my cultural
upbringing— my defensive noetic homeland
security issues. My greed. My Fear.
unlike things must meet and mate and wrestle
with the angel Art. Fight Club: wrestling with
god: my will be done versus thy will be done.
I fight the law and the law wins never the less:
fighting counts. Yearning’s the destination.
If you were all in my classes, I could make
you take it down, what I say—my ruminations,
commentary, opinion—and insist it will be on
the exam and I will grade you on how well
you get it. That’s the nature of my institutional
ex-officio Authority. I may or may not have
charisma but it makes no never mind. The grade
counts like a sonofagun and makes you bow
your head and do what I say. Voluntary
Involuntary issues. Acquaintance rape, so to
speak—in manners of speaking. Need we argue?
School – “leisure time.” Once out of school,
you’re a free-thinker.
