Critic's Pen Unsheathed

Sword brashly drawn from scabbard Gilded blade with a lucent polish lathered Burnished to reflect the availing light on each side gathered Conversely, deflecting the pious streams pharisaically blathered Weapon-grade mind steeled to cut through the broad discourse Sharp point piercing each tangled, silken strand; puncturing each uncorroborated source Serrated edges slashing through the syntactical pulp so coarse Double-edged blade mincing then scoring lexicon that generational divide did divorce    Vaunted crest advertising noble intentions Brittle helmet to repel callous, vain repetitions Dense breast plate to ensnare all heartless pretensions Luminescent shield to deflect all trite inventions
