on thin splinters of sacrosanct shared experiences,
the trolls dangle their bait, and, we, take a bite,
from shame, or fear, rather than howl for humanity
shamed by bored schadenfreudists' misuse of tragic
no one wants to be tagged for tipping a sacred cow,
no matter the cow's a cheap paper cut-out standing
in cardboard fields spray-painted with green grass:
a stage-set built by a very lonely audience of one
yet, nothing's offered here, on our collectivity's
altar, that's not shared within us, to some degree,
even if it exists only as a poltergeist in fantasy,
or, will-o-wisp flitting in memories' dismal swamp
my revulsion looks in a mirror, and sees revulsion
looking back with an accusing, leering, evil smile

I recently read an interview with Chris Robinson of The Black Crowes and Chris Robinson Brotherhood[^] who said about Joe Bonamassa "he's a Donald Trump on guitar, I hate that guy with his fake blues".
Admittedly I hadn't heard any of Bonamassa's music, but now that I have I can see his point
Chris Robinson, who has pissed off everybody including his brother, is no more than a rhythm guitarist, and can't make his mind up what genre he's supposed to be representing is hardly a source of wisdom to which I am inclined to bow. It's not like every guitarist that ever lived has not had similar charges thrown at him at some time.
hardly a source of wisdom to which I am inclined to bow
I agree with him on this point though, even if only to do what you always do to me
To be fair though, his Brotherhood does sound a lot better than Bonamassa's dumbed down 'blues' rock for the Bona masses
