Listen to the shouting,

as if increased volume

was proof of rightness.

Oh, the indignation!

when thinking’s challenged!

Everyone and everything

set to deliberately hold

them back! Poor things.

Their whole lives they

have had it all for the asking.

Expectation is dangerous.

What a shock to face

the reality that  the words

they write and the stories

they tell aren’t as brilliant

or ground-breaking as they

imagine. How hard to face

their incredible mediocrity.

Their frustrated ranting just

reveals the content of their

character is also

wanting.
