we punish real heroes
with silent ambivalence
casting instead our bright
diamonds and pearls into
settings on vulgar tin crowns
worn by heads of celebrity
spurious icons whose claims
upon fame are but vacuous
shallow reflections of values
that coarsen the culture
that cheapen the measure
of man by his meanest
ignoble ambitions
