A Fog of Blurbs

Their plumage is a sheen of phrases whose meanings are the same-
inveigling, too frequently heard, obnoxious birds, yet tame,
their mewling name is pecks of compliment with no one speck of blame.

Indifferent in the event that they foul their nests or poop rains at the rabble,
garrulously collected at the garret eaves of Babel,
they preen as they hold forth on arts within which they dabble,

for fact is going out the window while the Blurbs fly into town;
a mist of cloying tidings, idea necessary to renown,
their beaks develop lengthy and longer and are uniformly brown.
