Well Kept Secret | John Maurer

You can die of consumption the same as starvation
The equinox is not without solstice in the same way
Too far in any direction is too far, that is clear 
Yet turning around testifies to a waste of time
This is a fallacy; an error does not make a solution moot
The noctambulist wishes it did

I will rest when I have no questions left
So when my tongue gets cut out
This is Hammurabi’s code
For how many have I sliced with my own serrated voice
This is truly the meaning of Socratic
Following laws you don’t believe in
For reasons you can’t or at very least won’t reveal
