Is it us or it that's messed up?

Everyone's deforming in the presence of the swarming
Of the bee of the bird of the moth
Protozoa, snakes, and horses have enlisted in the forces
Of the bee of the bird of the moth

All are irresistibly directed by the section of a
Hypnotizing tractor beam presenting a prediction
Of the sleep of reason corporation in association
With the bee of the bird of the moth
