Goodbye, good surgeon (George Carlin, 1937-2008)

GC ...

Taking scalpel to our tongue,
    cut out its prohibitions,
Taking scalpel to our ear,
    cut out its impeditions,
Taking scalpel to our brain,
    cut out its dispositions,
Taking scalpel to our body,
    cut out its inhibitions,
Taking scalpel to our culture,
    cut out its superstitions,
Taking scalpel to our life,
    cut out its contradictions—

And hung them out for us to spy.
