Prate on
Knock them down with words
Slay them in the name of
Public opinion

Write on
Right all the supposed wrongs
That provide fodder to pay your bills

With that pen of high morality
With the ink that
Masks all your inner demons
Traduce them all


Affect moralistic outrage
The transparency of everyone else’s Ills
Apparent to only you
Who feels the need to spare no one
And to condemn all

The power of that mighty pen
The deftness and pseudo- clarity of your opinion
Acquires a following
Of ignorant and feckless drones
Who lift you on high
Parading you as a modern day hero
A champion of the little man

None can see the hypocrisy and cant in you 

Your cloak of public opinion
Your inner ill will
With the requisite revenge
Creates a monster only
Happy with his poison pen

No fairness
No compromise
No letting be

You are king
But only for now
The short term mind-set that you dwell in
Will conquer you another day
Those that praise will
One day slay
