Soapbox orators incessant,
Impervious to introspection,
Abhorrent of pause,
Commune with replicas
To quarantine diverse thought.
These omnipresent talking heads
Flourish in their world where
Silence and listening are forbidden.
Purveyors of a verbal pandemic
They throttle communication
With fathomless etceteras,
Unaware of audience exodus.
There is no start
Because there is no finish.
Narcissism passing as wisdom
Sabotages insight.

Effective Immediately!
City Anti-Pollution Ordinance:
All Talking Is Suspended
Indefinitely Until Such Time
As The Public Is No Longer
At Risk For Infection.
