Keep It Lean

Keep It Lean

keep it lean
keep the mind
and the soul 
lean

avoid
the indulgences
of scripture
of ceremony
of lecture
of punditry
of movements
of manifestos
of treatises
of critiques
of convictions
of doubtlessness 

and avoid
flags
fraternities
societies
and most of all
anything
far too eager
to confirm

avoid
their fatty
greasy
indulgences
of slippery 
contradictions
savory gratifications
digesting
metabolizing
to flab
in the mind
and blubber
in the soul
