Knowledge is a weapon they say,
A weapon to fight for the greater good,
But there is a another face to this coin,
In some hands it is abhorrent,
A tool turned on the good,
Genius can be malicious,

When a cranium takes a wrong turn,
And finds itself in a glade full of malcontent,
Like opening a new wing of a haunted manor,
It is the reptilian side of a mans brain,
Cold and unconcerned with feelings,
The greater the mind the greater the danger,

An anti-hero to oneself,
A villain to all others,
Conscience strung up in an evil lair,
All lasers and shark pits,
This is when an IQ level,
Becomes a terror level.

A counterpart of sorts to ‘Construction‘.

Today we earn our keep,
With sire and sibling,
We work through the day,
Sunrise to sundown,
Sweat becomes crowbars,
While effort becomes splinters,
Strain begets demolition,
Humanity begets ruins,

New homes become debris,
To a strangely upbeat radio soundtrack,
With the nails and detritus,
Plasterboard and nail hammers,
Lead and fragments,
We’re demolishing an old world,
Making way for a new one,
Or perhaps among a current utopia.

I once met a lady,
Beautiful in body,
But simply divine in intellect,
We found ourselves alone trading words,
Lessons and stories,
Fables and songs,

Learning and cavorting,
We make love with words over warm cider,
Each anecdote a kiss on the neck,
Syllables and verbs are lips and tongues,
Words are caresses,
Our conversations are as a moan in the ear,

Soft music plays somewhere out of sight,
The dark begins to lift,
We each are spent,
Our minds sweating,
And the night ends too soon,
Will we ever meet again?
