The sacrifice so strange

Sacrifice your intelligence
for confidence in superficial
throw out your pen
for the acceptable pursuits of men

Lift the sword
in due accord
so proud, so vain
with more to gain from the lessons in brain

If I wish to see past the material
the visceral, the moral
the vile, the feral
the perils of pressure
the measure of men under pretensions of treasure

I shall offer you my jewels
for the sake of barter
give me your deepest knowledge of life
a superficiality that shall make me smarter
