By
   The mentality of man is weighed in
Layers upon layers upon layers upon layers of
Hurts and angers and loves and fears and trusts and distrusts and
                               Cautions.
We've wrapped ourselves in barbed fence
That can be penetrated only by those with
Probes as sharp as the hands which wielded it:
The gravitational field which keeps our
Layers upon layers upon layers upon layers of
Hurts and angers and loves and fears and trusts and distrusts and
                              Cautions
Around us like the clothes we wear in Summer that
We long to shed but cannot for fear that our
Layers upon layers upon layers upon layers of
Hurts and angers and loves and fears and trusts and distrusts and
                               Cautions
will be revealed.
