conventionality poems

Following | A Poem by Guy Farmer

Startlingly conventional,
Seeking simple answers to
Complex questions,
Ambiguity to be avoided
At all costs.

Aggressive, sneering
At anyone who doesn’t
Agree with him,
Projecting unresolved
Rage on bystanders.

Rigid, uncreative,
Profoundly unfulfilled,
Chasing the rush
That comes from
Following the herd.
