The vain and the forgotten

An unholy war between

the vain and the forgotten,

a torturous timeless tumult

with an outcome quite rotten.

 

Driven to dire consequences

the vain vapidly air their voice

the forgotten cover their eyes

a conscious negation of choice.

 

Podium high, oxygen deprived,

thoughts only ego directed,

desperation drives the bleeding,

lying pale and strongly berated.

 

Vanity, drunk on the heinous fluid

forgets the flailing flock bleating,

they will never rise to any height

only an endless painful retreating.
