Haughtiness once was
swallowed whole.
Now is it not
sweetly savoured
in the mouth of vanity?

Dim is the path trod by
those of deep worth.
Ere long this path will be
obscured by worldly tastes.
Invidious indifference
now paves an attractive
opulent runway
stretched beneath a delicious
sky of deceit.

But beware
my friend
for it leads to
a bitterness
whose only balm is
the salt of defamation.

7 July 1995

Word of the day: invidious. I like it.
