The fatbirds are in the trees last count 660
Their sqwaklaugh spreads through West Queen
West making even the holiest hipster feel foolish
Like on Saturday when Falstaff shouted at the well
shod Opera crowd: YOU ARE ALL FOOLS!
Then laughed a bellylaugh causing chaos to his fatsuit
Is Toronto becoming a reliquary of fallen media darlings?
There’s Rob Ford +now Jian Gomeshi He has not been
charged with a crime +the allegations have not been tested
in court Yet it seems a sport to pillory and dig up the latest
viddy This time: bondage +beating during sexual activity
Of course if Jian Gomeshi is found guilty he should suffer the
most extreme penalty Sexual violence is not pretty Ditto sucker
punching one’s dates +shielding teddy from the harshest of realities
What strikes me is that few ever talk compassionately about the
glaring need for therapy or ministry until it’s too late
It always felt like Rob might harm himself Until cancer came along
+claimed him as it’s patient he was routinely humiliated Jian now
eviscerated is M.I.A. So I ask you gentle reader: What would Jesus say?
