Simple good

Don’t look now
It’s that word again
“Nuance”
Creeping up on rigid pillars
Weaving its way through
Dark suburban bedrooms
And majestic kempt lawns
Stealing the thinking man’s hardhat

It needs to be expunged
Because categories are so delightful
Who is nuance, a word among many
To challenge that?
Complexity is just trying to be sneaky
Corrupting the natural order of 100 years ago

And buildings were demigods
Words from the academy sacrosanct
The grey-haired shamans from a simpler time
Reveled in anarchy

The economy was also good
Because it would bend to your mind
A seething complex thing that no one comprehended
But understood in crystal clarity when the time came

Nuance
