The spy captures an audience
But not his enemy
The thief captures food
But never satisfaction
The priest captures god
But cannot find good
The eloquent capture words
That lack in meaning
The arrogant capture themselves
But tremble when isolated
The lovers capture hearts
And other body parts
The doctor captures health
And all your money too
The bourgeois capture wealth
Especially yours
The philosopher captures thought
But isolates them to rot
The fool captures shit
And ends up eating it
