Author Heath Brougher – Snobs and Swine

My good friend Heath Brougher in this phenomenal CTU Anthology!

Creative Talents Unleashed

Their nails-on-chalkboard voices

filled the halls. Every day, I’m,

walking through their swarms,

was drowned by a sea of snootiness and conformity,

invective and thoughtlessness and yuppie echoes

and mirrorism and insult and swine-talk.

Year after year I was subject

to their condescension, the self-made pedestal of ego

from which they shouted down at me,

throwing spears of jagged jibes. Their voices irked:

phony voices annoyed, saturated in selfishness,

became the world, became my routine.

My life growing dimmer by the second,

caked in the snobby twang of their venomous valley-girl and

boy voices.

To this day I’d like to throw their bodies and actions

on the white picket fences of suburbia

that doubtlessly ran along their front yards.
