“Confidence tricksters”by Sofia Kioroglou

Vainglorious fanfaronade
a detestable compound of
vulgarity and rodomontade

Odiously Pecksniffian
aggressively monopolizing virtue
overbearing prats and their cortège

Appropriating power, grinding down legitimate holders
enacting laws, those timeserving opportunists
those holier-than-thou confidence tricksters
