we value persistence—we cheer
for the underdog—we relish
the rags-to-riches story—
except for                     always.


we hail success, not perseverance;
failure yields sympathy at best,
at worst—disgust.
we promote riches, not rags;
artfully avoiding the dispossessed, the james gatzes,
gracing the jay gatsbys.
