call to pause

listen up, you listless bastards

disregard your course of action

nevermind those nosy neighbors

brush aside that bearded faction

put a stop to all the pretense

tell those cops you’re needed elsewhere

step away from urgent duty

disengage from life’s disrepair

distance yourself from the others

fall away from frantic mothers

demonstrate your due discretion

if you would adopt these druthers

shove that geriatric heathen

right the fuck up into heaven

time is of the utmost essence

marshall stacks stuck on eleven

leave the politics behind you

consequence begets no virtue

drop the vape and all its trappings

fondle not that naked statue

situate yourself before me

revel in this allegory

vigilantly heed its message

sing aloud its untold glory

all your life precedes this moment

reap the profits of your torment

ne’er forget these words i sayeth

Byron is a CAT, goddamnit.
