"…HOW PLEASED I WAS TO BE RELEASED TO BE THIS MAN, WITH A VOICE THE WORLD COULD HEAR, TO SHARE MY PASSION AS THIS TRAVELLING BALLADEER…"

i\’ve been contemplating 
    what is required to determine 
        how the weight of a man 
            is measured 

     are there possibilities 
  in pixie dust to transform 
a humble puppet adorned 
   with tethered strings
       to control and manipulate
           each and every 
                movement 

   at what point can a massive
     sized pair of kitchen shears 
        slice through not only 
  
the simple outer cotton thread
    but also the impenetrable 
        wire chord that fortifies 
           the stiffness within these
              delicate laces

pinocchio should be afforded
   any human chance possible 
       as he discovered mankind
           can be consumed with ugly
             bile riddled beings 
                that strength 
                    the spirit 

       can not only illuminate
     an organic core but also 
         one that is constructed
             with cogs that move
                  to form facial expressions
                      absent of a true 
                           essence 

   subterfuge aligns itself 
       with verity — scissors 
          are not enough 
              to snip the cord 
           one concept 
       however — what if pinocchio\’s
    rebellion included — literally and violently 
  one firm grasp on every string 
    adorned to his body and tears it out 

       blood would be replaced with splinters 
            however a sense of emancipation
                to stand tall on two wooden feet
                     that did not require the aid 
             of a human hand to directly lift
           any available appendages 

   no more
  
        \”no strings on me!
              no strings on me!\”
