Open letter to the sycophants.

"It's only business" you say,

as if it were the natural way.

As if your heart and mind weren't divorced.

Strictly speaking, of course.


Your head is simply filled with lies.

So apparent from my position

that I cant help but despise

your petty, vain, dull composition.


Licensed to be cruel and harsh.

Keep the clanky wheels in motion.

You took the easy way out

without protest or commotion.


Nothing much behind

those clouded eyes.

Only cognitive dissonance.

Certainly not a soul.


You really have no excuses.

Infinity more cowardly and pathetic 

than those who choose nooses.


You don't have to say anything at all.

It's all written in your demeanour.


I apologise for my terrible flow.

Why don't you have a go?


Fuck you.


Thanks for reading.


Can't see or respond to comments for some reason. Oh well.
