The Poet Community

Self-Adulation | A Poem by Guy Farmer

It’s clear that
All that is happening
In that predatory mind
Is a miserable plan
To curry favor,
Establish dominance.

The need to be loved,
While overlooking the
Unpleasant flaws of
Reality, paramount,
Only self-adulation
Featured on the menu.

Manipulating the limbs
Of cold mannequins,
Unfeeling eyes staring
Blankly, no connection
To actuality, only
Temporary gratification.
