A Fog of Blurbs
Their plumage is a sheen of words whose meanings are the same-
inveigling, too often heard, obnoxious birds, but tame,
their mewling call is pecks of praise without one speck of blame.
Indifferent if they foul their nests or poop rains on the rabble,
garrulously gathered on the garret eaves of Babel,
they preen as they pontificate on arts in which they dabble,
for truth goes out the window when the Blurbs fly into town;
a mist of cloying tidings, thought essential to renown,
their beaks grow long and longer and are uniformly brown.
