Shaman dishonour

as you swell.
you’re only a man.
your fool’s cunning tells you
that we are littler.
you’ve been down the dark alleys
and have seen the envious,
the intolerant,
the self-righteous,
the quick to anger.
you know the words,
the inflections,
the dismissive gestures
that will bring that flock to heel.
to rally under the banner
of a standard bearer without the torch.

You’ve set the bar so low.

The world sees.
