The Servile Temperament

Back the hell off,
oh salamander of spiritual dispensation.
The old pedagogical shriek strikes deep
and dumbfounds all who give it space.
I vow here and now
to erase the servile temperament
that so degrades and discourages
from active seeking of new avenues
for strength to express itself as such.
A bit much, don’t you think?
Only if by a bit much
we mean radical, extra, lit.
Excuse me for going all firebrand on you.
Maybe try unpuckering your arse.
