Firefighting

Mediocrity is a fast-catching flame
upon the cultural commonwealth,
each smoke signal a puffed-up name
that is ruinous for public health.
The fire has no flash or glow
as people circle around it in haste;
it has no inspiration or passion, so
it gnaws hungrily, but without taste.
Meanwhile I ready the water hose
and piss all over the dumpster fire,
dismayed at the carnage and those
who wallow in the ashes of the pyre.
