Head Hunter

He relished winning debates
and all scholarly wars,
beheading his opponents
and stacking their skulls
one atop the other,
more and more and more,
constructing a
totemic idol
dedicated to his own
ego,
falsely believing
that it somehow made him
stand that much taller,
even as they threatened
to teeter over and
topple upon him.
