Analysis of Diverse Perversities

(after the painting by Paul Klee)
by Neil Ellman

They are perverse, not us,
we the straight and narrow
in the marrow of our bones
they corrupted mulish miscreants
contrary to the body politic
they play at politics and war
feign ecstasy and empathy
and ride on irregular tracks
they the heretical renegades
we the righteous
and the pure.
