Lukewarm

Its touch could chill one  to the bone

(if It were truly cold).

Its roar would truly shake the earth

(if It could be so bold).

Its coat would be lustrous and bright

and could light up the darkest night

as though it were a sunny day

( if Its coat were not a shade

of boring, neutral grey)

Its charisma would light up a stage

and leap from the pale, printed page

(but Its aura is, instead,

an anodyne shade of beige).

You’ll find that It’s beneath your praise

and beneath your scorn,

It is completely neutral

and totally lukewarm.
