Subtle-Whelming*~by Constancio Sulapas Asumen Jr

(Opus495 ~> Subtle-Whelming)
Out of clue, you never know what hit you;
Chaos and confusion do overwhelm.
Were you on the payroll, they would ditch you;
Depending on the horde crowding the helm,
They’re better served opting to underwhelm:
The bigotry of low expectations
Facilitates hiding indiscretions!
Hitting below the belt is deemed taboo;
The polloi protect ancestral heirloom.
It matters not be you a friend or foe,
You suffer from familiar doom and gloom;
For the same reasons as pining for home:
Then the distinction gets subtle-whelming,
Not knowing whether going or coming!
You’d much prefer to get it cut and dry;
Where there is nothing needing explaining.
You’d claim the truth, and every lie decry;
Vaunting endorsements, flaunting everything,
Inventing flagrant meaning for breathing:
The street lamps that you fail to wake to light,
Muddle your goal to make it through the night!
