On the Outside

December 18, 2010

You never look
at me.
I often look
at you.

You have
those things
I am told
bring happiness.

I have
those things
I am told
bring shame.

I look into
your restaurant –

you spend
my week’s wages
in a night

so elegant
so white

table cloths
and candles
fine wine
and waiters.

I could go on
and on,

but I have been ordered
to move along…

I thought the waste and insensitivity were about to end.

How Is This Change?

Living like royalty in a desperate world.

back to the back of the bus

Here we are again
honoring  leaders
as if kings and queens.

All hail _______!
( Ambassador, Senator, President, Judge, Bishop, Governor…)

they require
more deference than you.

Their interests
more important
than yours.

It is a paradigm
the founders
could not transcend –

monarchy and privilege,

justified as
the way things are

as the sign reads:

Those of you without a gown –
move to the back of the bus.

All that is required –
blind obedience

to the keepers
of the “truth”.

Can you?

Travel each new day
without thinking
you are better
or less than others.

you believe
your group
is inherently
intrinsically
better
than
others

This is a round table discussion where I listen to the needs of others. They are called lobbyists. They are usually white men in good suits. My kind of people.
