Us and Them

July 7, 2008
By Sarah Beddingfield, Colorado City, TX

Us and Them is how we organize.
We look for mistakes
And when we patronize
Everyone partakes.

And here is where I make my statement
Among the judgmental
And that is where they find betrayment
Which is hardly coincidental.

Living within the walls of a cage
Has never appealed to me
But living beneath our “Golden Age”
Is their only dream

And as the clock is ticking away
I look out the window and sigh.
When Us and Them have something to say
I might just reply.
