The Fire Dragons

They coursed their thoughts
Pretending they were dragons
Smoking like they were nothing else

They had just graduated
In the art of smoking a cigarette
Without even hurting it

Nobody could deny the hypocrisy
Nor the ugly face of mediocrity:
Were they students of Socrates
They would know the realities.

    I found this piece humorous, I can imagine young boys feeling powerful.
