"Suffering produces character",
The pious ones say,
As if pain, the redactor,
Pleasure could betray.
Impious heresy:
"Suffering's a detractor
Sans product to display,
Regarding anything, thereafter".

"Passion produces felicity",
Impious heretics say,
"Speech, its own credibility,
Has no piper to pay".
Pious popinjay:
"Pleasure's a principality
Sans food on its tray,
Starving anything, in totality".


--H. Arlequin
