Michael Marrotti- A Poem


"Fanboys United"

It's a sight for
insecure eyes
The manifestation
of flattery
Under the guise
of solidarity
Digital high fives
when they know
deep down in
their shallow souls
that their writing
is as bad as my own
It's a special group
and to be honest
in which pertaining
to them (fanboys)
Honesty rarely occurs
I'm without the
invitation
What good am I
when I trimmed
my nails
I can't scratch
their backs properly
Fanboys united
The fallacy
has been
detrimental
to their writing
I've been ostracized
I feel so alone
At least I still have
my old friend candor
As they cliche away
I know everything
is subjective
But at the end
of the day
we'll never progress
If all we have
is the fanboys united
