The Great Debater

I am the great debater, and the world my only stage
I prime my proper thoughts preparing for  the lone spotlight 
I revel in religious rants that rage across the page
while I oppose audacious offal torn from tongues I fight.

I am the great orator, on the altar I dictate
which paltry pandered profferings that I choose to destroy
with volumous vernacular aimed always at the state
the off'ring of opponent's offense crumbles like a toy.

I am the master of my words in argument sublime
with chilling winds of wisdom I send blizzards to the fore
my avalanche cascades as counterpoints are caked with rime
I am the great debater, and shall be forevermore.

Written in septanary meter.

    I love the third line! Sounds like someone we know. Hmmm,...I wonder.

    Interesting philandering rambling thoughts that you presented for us to ponder on the stool of the philosopher that plunders. Keep the creative pen flowing. Sara

    Thats genius,7, but you dont have the power to back your prideful boast. Too afraid of love to find the truth and power.
