"Junk" for Sunday Scribblings















Diógenes

Diogenes in old times
like a beggar spent his life

living proudly like a dog

rejecting material comfort
he could instictively know

what was friend or who was foe

why your name has been applied

to a behavioural disorder
characterised by self neglect and hoarding?
I want to replevy you and assure

that your intention was pure
