Up and down

They screwed you up ,in priest-like rite
But you screwed someone up yourself.

Everyone screws someone somewhere.
Somebody gets screwed up and down.

Some body  screwed down some body
Blaming its syndrome on a pale moon.

Some body else screwed some one up
With the light missing in lifelong eyes.

This screwing up thing is playing out
Of original sin and goes on endlessly.

 

(Reading Philip Larkins’ “This be the verse”)
