Outward Introspection

Okay, so I scrapped the idea of that godawful play…. Onwards.
Here’s a new poem I’ve been working my wits over.

Outward Introspection

Extroverts in the introverts lair,

Pages and persons laid bare

Ensnared and enslaved,

 

A facade of civility sweeps, 

like a veil over the debauched and debased, 

over the pathetic and primal.

 

Erudite apes pontificate knowledge!

Hunting and gathering,

Superfluous, false notions of superiority

Colonising the wits of the simple

An illusion of authority. 

 

Outward introspection,

Lives for inspection.
