"Things don't change, we change...... then we change things"

Oh stern shoe!
Where is thy patch?
In incorruptible situations of the eyelets
You tear apart like raging water droplets
No sarcasm in their vows of revenge
Therefore, swiftly do their shoelace avenge
But compromise at the whisper of bribe
And compassion of individuals of same tribe
What inspiration do you retain of the feet?
Is there hope in shoemakers and their meet?
They have deposited bantam hope in mind of toes
And compelled each participant to act as foes
Is it not thee that move shilly-shally on a walker’s walk?
And acts dilly-dally in a talker’s talk?
Progenitor of the prior, offer us more lore
Personage of the extant, pose us intellect
Sidekick of the offing, bestow on us resolution
For we supplicate that thus we have a fair solution

I actually wrote this in inspiration from my experience. It's actually when all I needed was my voice to be heard and I knew I was fit for the position ahead but favoritism overrode me and my ethnicity was not of any help either. I was so hopeless.

This is excellent. It is great because I think it paints the picture of what life could be.
