Raison d'être

The reason for my articulation
is simple and utilitarian-
I seek not perfection,
But I seek ablution.

Perfection is reserved for those
with time to spend and money to burn.
My soul requires release,
its ransom necessitates recompense:

Expiated expeditiously, in a flurry
of words that scathe my every thought.

I believe your ablution has been granted in this elocution of words, so well put together. A very clever poem.
