Mingling Among The Mongers

Mingling Among The Mongers
(A Study In Self Awareness)

I was mingling among the mongers
of whores and wars. They seek lost souls
just to cast asunder and plunder.

Parading amidst masqueraders.
With the thieving liars and evil
deceiving undercover traitors.

Glancing at the galivantings
of the scoffers. Making uneven offers
or just spewing forth filth filled rantings.

With pointing finger and wagging
stabbing tongue, they all stand accused
and convicted by the time I'm done.

But then......

My mouth moves to grimace from grin
as I see, all along, standing in a
hall of mirrors, I've been.
