In satires be as Kafka-like as possible
Because satires in the general drama
Are the end of episode for skeletons
And they cannot share a mutual joy.
They can be Kafkaesque and a delight
Can be shared by skeletons helplessly
With the worms and other concerned,
With permits you apply but won’t get.
We are not making the satires willfully.
We are as willful as skeletons below.
So we make satires of circumstances.
We now call them by the name irony.
(echoes from Thomas Hardy’s poem Channel Firing)
