2016 April PAD Challenge Day 28: ‘Important People’ #aprpad

Day 28’s prompt: Write an ‘Important (blank)’ poem

Important People

The ones marked ‘important’
And sometimes even with
An entirely irrelevant ‘very’,
Have often been sole decider
Of taking that coveted title
Whether they are worthy or not.

It thoughtlessly inflates
All their worst habits and traits,
Deluding them into thinking
They are literally amazing
When in hard, damning fact,
They are still actually appalling.

Their shiny new badge
Might grant its shallow perks
And unlock the way to
The wildest, darkest parties
But it won’t make tiny men
Feel any bigger on the inside.
