Tribalism

Tribalism
How they rally to his defense,
hardening like the phalanx scab
upon a festering wound, yet having sense
enough to know that each lancet stab
was self-inflicted, struck to leak the purulence
of cancerous cells in the fickle, feeble flab,
their putrid effervescence
a prognosis hopeless in the lab.
