The Lords of Complete

By Tony DeLorger © 2013


Complete,

irrevocably accomplished,

experienced

and knowledgeable,

intensely proud

and self-assured,

people rise to occasion,

expounding their expertise

in the arena of life,

and forcing their bloated egos

to positions of authority,

to the forefront of the downtrodden.


Complete,

supercilious,

innately superior

and unduly impressed

by their own achievements,

these morphed messiahs,

grace our lives with prevalence and assurance,

that they alone prevail,

for our benefit,

and our resurrection

through their benevolence,

and open-heartedness.


Complete,

unaffected,

resilient and sacrificing,

these pariahs of reality,

wallow in self-adoration,

sure of will and purpose,

certain of righteous action,

and unperturbed by criticism,

there to lead,

to stand as models,

deities of thought and movement,

when all along their egos bleed, so close to evil they'll never see.



Those so certain of themselves and their believes can be dangerous. Without a heart to consider and balance an ego, justification is as easy as pulling a trigger.

There's a lot of my favourite movies in that list; you're preaching to the converted. I love that you have such diverse interests; it shows someone open and who knows themselves and accepts difference and variety for its individual worth, rather than conforming to the mainstream. Yes, I was surprised I got no response to this poem; thought it was a good one too. It's funny I never get big response for my work; I guess I'm a niche genre and not everyone wants to think about life as I do. But I'm resigned to simply be who I am and not pander to subjects most read, rather follow my heart and mind. Thanks again my friend for your support. Give those furry guys a hug from me. Oh by the way Maria e-mailed me and I've caught up with her poetic voice and I'm sure will have many future discussions. Thanks for that. Take care.

Well Sir Tony I love 'rescuing' poetic orphans with no comments and this masterwork should be read and taught in all of the classrooms over the world and naturally I will start with Facebook - the ultimate social classroom on the net.

Perhaps the title should be The Lords of Incomplete

or as my dear mum would say: The Lords of shit-asses , lol lol

gotta love my mum for saying that, lol.

Well I have arrived home once again to my happy pussycats and some Thelonious Monk and Chet Baker.

I am also a very big fan of the classical ballet and a big boxing fan too , especially of the golden age like the 80's and before that ......

Now that's yin and yang, lol.

My recommendation tonight is A Clockwork Orange by Kubrick,

Taxi Driver by Scorcese, Blue Velvet by David Lynch, Wings of Desire by Wm Wenders, Persona by Ingmar Bergman, Satryicon by Fellini, and

The Wild Bunch by Sam Peckinpagh.
