  why speak
   when asked
why sleep
     why rent
   when you can own

      the offensive proximity
    of the cane
        and candycane
     the lucid eyes
       of the fallen man

  why wear
 a tall white collar
    why wear a tie
   why ask why
      why follow

  automatic caution
door
   and the precise
 reptilian section
   of the warning sign
