That's what you get

by Johnny Crimson

To do what is human
and attempt at once to loosen.
Lucian made his own movement,
an attempt to deal with nuisance.

His methods weren't proven.
Quite often, he was left in ruin.
His daughters name was Susan.
She'd formed quite the union.

A self-proclaimed alethian,
often ranting in dilution,
she'd ramble in illusions
while spreading such pollution.

Her husband John had a solution
to her methods still unproven.
He'd seek her absolution
in return for air pollution.

They gave her attribution,
while she bled on the constitution
and swore her contribution
was only for the disillusioned.

By means of mass distribution,
they had begun an evolution.
Lucian had reached his execution
and John was placed in an institution.

Now Susan sat in her Lazy Susan
like a little lilliputian
and studied noise pollution
by means of persecution.

When the case reached persecution,
her charge: prostitution.
She again found a resolution
with much self restitution.

She'd seek her retribution
and begin another revolution.
She had studied name substitution.

She proposed a buffer solution
to keep her from execution.
Much like the french revolution
she'd act in the heat of solution.

Towards a joint resolution,
she sought redistribution
of that saline solution.
It was another solid solution.

She was now running a thrift institution
specializing in water pollution.
Such began a counterrevolution
that back fired and led her to a mental institution
where she was denied her normal distribution.

She received a stay of execution.
