Snake Charmers of High Places: a Poem
That fascination started at an early age
with all those who were taller, bigger, higher
to furnish all props for our later life stage
for our chosen biggie, pretender, or liar.
All those at high and unreachable places
somehow dictate respect, envy, even fear
they may look down on us with sneering faces
and yet deserve applauses, ovations, and cheer.
Is it our musical idol or a political charmer
or even a boss with that imposing power
treating us like we are some illiterate farmer
with no accessible stairs to their ivory tower.
Why do we keep falling in that worn out trap
for most of them live of our donated buck
so could we ignore that high status crap
and work on creating our own good luck.
Let those at high places enjoy what they've got
we don't have to cheer at their parade
let's focus rather on our own lot
without that butt-kissing, subservient charade.
