Churned

The nameless faces
and faceless names
will try to tempt you
to play their games
they’ll lure you
to the edge of shame
and push you over
into the flames

you’ll hardly notice
you’re being burned
won’t really feel when
the spit is turned
you’ll think it’s something
that you have earned
won’t know you’re butter
until you are churned

beware the serpents
in all their disguises
straight and narrow
is where the wise is
