Keen the whole lot,
Have you seen Adam’s Eve?
Killing every great-whale
She’s an obvious thumbscrew
Twisting and clogging hearts off service.
An invisible enemy, she’s a friend
Passionate and blinding
Killing all great-whales
With uncontrollable emotions
And a Jurat weakness
Just like law, keen the whole lot.
Acquitted or sentence to death
She’s the jury charges
Hammering desk with pictures
Stamping a gap in the castle walls
She’s a friend, an invisible enemy
As beautiful as garden trees
As tall as those found in moist habitats
She’s as vulnerable as fuel.
