The New Tea Leaves

with shining originals
or glowing implants

and wallets full-stuffed
with benjamins and grants

we come now dragging
our hearts through the dust

our troubles in backpacks
our new masses percussed

to read our fortunes in our DNA
and see if bad genes can be expressed away

if great-great grandmother on the Corsican side
will lead us to lunacy or with MS to collide

while the trillion odd bacteria we host in our gut and our crap
wish we would only relax–take a nap!
