A Free Verse Poem
"Tower Denizens" by Robert Zimmerman
They recline in towers carved from ivory
Hearing only their own echoes
Forsaking the hamlets they’ve forgotten
Disregarding those they never knew
 
They should care
     But don’t
They should hear
     But won’t
 
They commiserate with useful idiots
     Make decisions
     Ignore needs
Spout words without substance
Claim victories never won
     In battles never fought
 
They should be principled but they’re not
They should serve but nolo contendere
 
Their stories are fables
Their morals fall flat
Reality is vapor
Fantasy is real
 
Their towers fall
Their constituents writhe
     Alas
          Ruination
