Midgets on Pedestals

Midgets atop pedestals of jargon, as giants pose

Swathed in vacuous verbosity, imposters!

Mediocrity concealed in pretentious prose

Their lexicon — the mask, the con, their shield

Assured, the plebians with smaller vocabularies daren’t expose

Perchance if some do come close

Turning even more prolific, evermore verbose

Midgets who sneer at us and everything

Contempt, the only explanation

Contempt explained with more contempt

Echoes of hollow erudition
