"Vampiric Halos"
Conformity reminds me of garlic.

Most people like it,
But have a secret,
Almost mandatory inclination to hate it,
In some way.

We all might like a sprinkle here and there,
But a whole mess of garlic would paralyze us all,
Or at least cause us to lose a great deal of friends.

Maybe the vampires were right,
Or maybe we are the societal vampires.

We must live to accept and avoid -
