What Langston Hughes Left Out

Take good care of your dreams, ‘cause dreams left deferred & unworded grow rabid & sewer-mouthed. Refuse to loofah, take long hot baths in retrograde babble. They feast on outrage, compose suicide notes riddled with typos, electronically transmit your thoughts into bank accounts of moral bankruptcy. Those deferred & unworded dreams rust up rainbows, riverdance at funerals, spread venereal diseases of dirty verbiage. They teach masterclasses in infighting & backbiting, create pandemics of pointless paranoia, counterfeit any last semblance of positive change. So yeah, take good care of your dreams.
