A philosophy by which I lived my life for quite some time, responsible for high school gross-out or mere extroverted egotistical non-conformism, later responsible for being a willing doormat to females of various persuasions.

The most effective rebuttal I have found for this paradigm is the phrase, "Ladies and Gentlemen, there speaks a man who has never been arrested."

when fires of observance lap at one's heels,
and one has found themselves worthy of scrutiny.
One is perceived to be a potential
threat to all who have come to undertand
that their prolific effluvium of verbal hogwash
has begun to stink.
At this point, all attention is good attention, as it furthers continued advancement of the idea that lavender and rose oil can camouflage shit.
