Aggressive Pseudo-Intellectualism

aggressive pseudo-intellectualism
the merest ripple of questioning
and a cacophony of too much protest
in defense of misty bastions

aggressive pseudo-intellectualism
the suggestion of undeserved accolades
provokes a flurry of big words
of status quo apologies

aggressive pseudo-intellectualism
confusing the value of fighting
with the value of being able to fight
reveal your barbs, Lao Tsu cringes

Why aspire, why pretend
To be an intellectual?
fear the specter of honest work?
others' false esteem will not save you

aggressive pseudo-intellectualism
once you let go honesty
fairness is the next to go
what price vanity?
