I was feeling through my mind

and touched upon a door

I hadn't been inside

so I started to explore

it was a storeroom cramped with rules

they had been passed on down to me

from the blind minds of my teachers

whose blurring blinded me

feeling in the darkness

I sorted through the rules

many were just handicaps

hidden in the tools

faulty scales and faulty rules

yield only faulty measures

tarnished toxic metal

bought by me as treasure
