just read it! it's not too long!

Chained to a post on the side of the road,
Laid piles of limp limbs confined by roses,
Tape on faces like red pen, brow furrowed,
I saw beneath the tape were pale noses.
All were the same, mouth sealed with a tape X,
X on each eye, and stuffed into ears,
Signs reading "freedom" hanging 'round their necks,
And people passing shouting stockade jeers.
"See no Evil, Hear no Evil, Speak no
 Evil" the billboard above the scene read.
"I refuse!" I called to the 'holy' trio
"to choose between" I continued, then said,
"Being a sexual being and a human being!"
And I asked the world:

The End
