I Am Not a Brand

I am not a brand,
Some corporeal mottled mass
Shaped upon the pedestal of style
Hard dependent all upon the whims of other men.

I am not a brand,
Seeking distinction from the mass
Through nuanced wit or nuanced style
Discontent to rank behind the fame of other men.

I am not a brand,
Some light ablaze amidst the mass,
A prophet-priest of the self-styled,
Ascerbic guardians who dream they love their fellow man.
