They’re Still There 2013

They’re Still There

 

They’re still there,

Those awful attitudes,

(unflattering, nothing to brag about)

Inborn, learned – it doesn’t matter:

 

How would you define ambition,

Vanity, greed, passive anger?

Subtle, languishing

As if not there,

Silent, never screaming,

Beaming secret rays through secret paths:

Holding sway: insidious;

Crafty, stealthy, underhanded attitudes

Still there.

“Beware!”

I tell myself

And you.

Pure Nakedness; Definitely Didactic;
