after Burroughs

The mouth is parted from the sphincter in name; but to the illiterate, the body is only an extension of either. Mouthly, a man is as good as his word: sphincterly, a tear where're he sits. A man is put together & torn apart each moment.

Sphinx-like, one man bows down before the throne he earned; the other takes his place on it. It is difficult to tell which is led by the mouth, & which by the sphincter.
