There has to be some orthodoxy
whose mask issues from insecurity:
the filmmaker assures his crony,
"It's a documentary -- but crazy!"
not to be bridled with solemnity,
the past taboo:  class in society
was beaten down by this barbarity  -
of this leveling conformity
only the bum or genius is free.

David Francis
