Constipated Idiocy

Constipated Idiocy

we're all idiots
needing to vent
our idiocy
in the warm
comforting
company
of our fellow idiots
at our concerts
festivals
rallies
revivals
or protests

we are idiots
enthusiastically
fervently
irrationally
hypocritically
supporting teams
in sports
politics
religions
and most 
other causes

or
we are the idiots
of the bars and taverns
weary
travelling companions
of destinations
like all the others
hospitable
in our case
to a particular
idiocy
of self
instead of causes
that nonetheless
needs 
venting
through our drunkenness

but there's some
too stubborn
too prideful
to accept
their idiocy
those idiots
alone
with just themselves
and their 
corrosively
contained 
foolishness

this subspecies
of stern idiot
confining
their foolishness
within
a festering idiocy
that rots
corrupts
from the inside
out
like constipated bowels
swelled
ready for rupture
in desperate need
of a healthy
relieving
shit

these idiots
too ashamed
to expose
their constipated idiocy
to themselves
let alone
anybody
else
until the rupture
explodes
hemorrhaging toxins
transformed
to rage
fury
and hate
or poisoning
the fevered 
mind and soul
into catatonia

there's some wisdom
in this expulsion
this release
of our idiocy
in our bars
stadiums
concert halls
churches
conventions

there's a wisdom
to the temporary
exorcism
of our idiocy
whether the fool
is conscious
of this wisdom
or not
