Delicate Dagger

Descending in slow
rhythmic execution,
deftly trimming away
the faithless excess

Allowing only a trace
of bohemian eccentricity
to exist where once
rebellion reigned

Could mediocrity be far
behind such appalling
declarative utterances
as rise amongst us

Voices of sameness that
decry a sampling of
uniformity which threaten
to trample each wayward

The wards of uniqueness
that still survive even
amidst the flatulent hoards
that permeate a struggling

Without diversity there
is only degenerative
duplicity intent on dulling
the cutting edge of tolerance
