to it that we would have accepted hook,
line, and sinker the Holy Orders: Go Ye
and Multiply! So multiply it is and Occupy.

but it is done on the safety of the driveway,
like governments demure when they put
meddling fingers in lovers’ bedrooms
and counsel: Thou shall not overpopulate.
They never say, though: Do not copulate.
