Random Poem:

Xenophobic
Ed2039

Fear of breaking new ground
 1
inhibits literary maturation,
 2
plowshare edges rust, blunting.
 3
 
 
Continuing to tread
 4
familiar footsteps,
 5
emblements wither.
 6
 
 
Hybridism rejected,
 7
some recoil in circular argument,
 8
perhaps build a straw man
 9
or resort to ad hominem
 10
to avoid the spotlight
 11
of introspection.
 12
 
 
Persecuting their advocates
 13
serves a duality
 14
of purpose,
 15
internally vindicating
 16
stagnating personal growth
 17
and emasculation of proponent.
