the impulses it thwarts:
a healthy sex life mitigates
the lust for other sports.

The road to wisdom??Well, it's plain
and simple to express:
and err
and err again
but less
and less
and less.

and better roads and more,
so that people can discover
even faster than before
that everything is everywhere alike.
