I saw the worst minds of my generation

rise to greatness.

I watched them crawl from the trenches of

filth they had built around themselves

to protect themselves.

I gaped while they jumped

from the firing pan

into the Fire

of fame and fun,

growing more damned

by the second.

I laughed as they fell from their pedestals,

enveloped in a sea of ridicule.

I sat there

I leaned back

and I laughed.
