Reputational Emergence

The hive, the herd, the hill,
we the colony 
seek consensus
our normative needle
pointing to the rose's hips
or thorns;

Transgressions to adjudicate
1. The prosaic
2. Pedantry
3. Esotericism
4. Repetition
5. Apathy
6. Expectations
7. Seduction
8. Misery
9. Artifice
10. Unreason
11. Non-parallel structure;

Judgments are rendered instantly
and the guilty will see 
the reddened seas part
at sentenced passing;

Group mindedness is our gift,
our penance is permanent shame,
and our pheromones are justice.
