Standing just below the ledge,

I bitterly look up.

There they are, happy amongst themselves.

Scorning us.

Do we do the same thing?

I wouldn't know.

For I stand here in anguish

between the two.

How can I get along with them?

Laugh and joke with them

when We are Blamed by Them

and Them We Blame.



Why must we stand so far apart?

Why the overpowering moat

separating the two worlds?

Why those jokes

values

hypocrisy

discrimination

segregation. Why?

I try to hold on

but I find nothing stable to grasp.

Can equality

True equality

be only a quixotic vision?
