The Sycophant

Rating: 5.0


The sycophant raves
At the zenith of his voice
ranting and chanting the praises
Of his temporal Overlords

He speaks dexterously,
His face bent earthwards and
Swears in the name of known

and unknown entities

If I didn't know better, I would have lack words to explain how I felt about this poem but because I am not foreign to this world, I would say that I see a painter, drawing vivid patterns of imagery with carefully articulated words, I depict the flow of imagination and the poet ceaseless vibration of inspiration, All I can say is that you are beautifully talented.

Splendid take on demons of sycophancy which continue to rile insecure leaders.
