Hobbes defiled

A good woman: the value of value judgments—
or she believes herself good. She volunteers her time
at the local baptistry and funds her dependents
who are both now grown up and grown scandalous,
houses this poet, hates only casually—
when hypocrisy mingles with the divine
you can’t help but reach your hand
in your mouth, gag out that bitter scroll,
unfold it, and read in dreary text
“even the moralist is a hedonist—
even the good among us sport erections.”
