Favorite Son

We threw up
a new hero from the masses today
and splattered him

Across the fervid skies
of our collective imagination

We placed
upon him the great
unbearable burden
of being
more perfect than we,
more stoic than we,
more sensitive than we,
more capable than we
and ever, ever
more heroic

So, when he
disappointed us
with his complete and utter
human-ness,

We
pulled the plug,

We
shot him down
and without mercy trampled him
under the thundering, rapacious footsteps
of our most perfect, projected,
hate-filled judgment,

Deeming him
so much less than we,
yet too, too much like we

For he showed us truths
we dared not see
