self righteous.

On your high horse,

the obsessive need to control
every element
of someone else’s life

fills your body with adrenaline.

Driven to slaughter
the opinions of others

you break rank with the rest of them

in order to fuel your desire for power.

For once in my life,
I would like to speak with you
instead of at you,

the wheels in your head turn,
crafting a response

without ever listening to what anybody is actually saying

and still,
you believe you’re above the rest of us,
you’ve found enlightenment

without ever being honest with yourself first.
