sharks, vultures and hyenas

 

be on guard against those
who seek perfection--
for they feel the most flawed

watch out for those who criticize
everything--
for they feel they are always wrong

beware of those who talk of others
in secret--
because they are also talking about
you

be aware of those who give too much--
something great may be asked for in
return

stay away from those always taking
up causes--
they are not trying to save the world,
just themselves

keep your distance from those who
compliment everything--
sooner or later, everything you do
will be seen as wrong

sharks, vultures and hyenas--

the carrion of this world
sitting on platforms, blogs
and social media

mouths wet with anticipation
as the blood of misery rises
and the feeding frenzy
begins--

small gods that few
worship
