Disparaging judge in ivory tower
Deflecting deficiencies with efficacious venom
Concern thyself with flaws of reflected image
Assess not the non-reflected
Their footsteps thou hasn’t ambulated.
Paragon of virtue, self-appointed of role
Cast first stone if without sin
On realisation of thy flaws, humility exhibit
Return stone groundward, polish glass house in lieu
Judge instead a journey in the non-reflected’s footprints.
Backstabbing miscreant, villain of misinformation
Negativity your default stance, be positive of that
Ricocheting attention resolves not foibles
No doubt a blemish humanity bereft
Ministration usurps assassination of character every-time.
Author of poem, hypocrisy spouting
Guilty of duplicity, accepting job judgemental
Sonnet of self-righteousness, misguided sanctity
Practise thy preaching, anger unresolved by vitriolic prose
