The Collusion of Mediocrity Poem

The collusion of mediocrity,

A tease. A dance of non-

Challenge, seeking safe

Harbours at Honesty’s expense.

In relief at escape

From another day’s

Truth, in soothing

Saying of mock-praise,

A reward for Criticism avoided.

The collusion of mediocrity

Will please. Reward for

A neatness of nicety

To deflect the naming

Of knowing and telling it

Like it is.

A piercing look and the

True-said attack in the

Spirit of Progression.

Yet from you, no earthy

Confession. Just air.
