DEVIOUS DISCLAIMER
Glenn R. Frantz

All weary occasions in this day are peaceful.
This is a repetition of confidence.
Any objection to the obstacles, good or not,
is a kind of reproach.

The false calamities named are those of the world,
and do not quite blind the propriety of the monopoly
to the mention of silence.
The apparent biochemical reactions are those of the deaf,
and do not merely vary the free will of the eyes
or the coughing of patterns.
This condition is claimed for a moment only.

Beware perfect distrust.
No bend of this harangue may be bought or torn,
chafed or obscured,
in any doubting or by any salve,
without keeping you in sight of the analogy.
This is a part of it.
Any relation of this point in books of proverbs,
decoys, or other cures, is no improvement.

The strange curse in this talk is for culture massage only.
