Privileged By Design

You tell me you don’t hate,
but then you find a way.
You tell me that to be like you
is what I must do.
The freedom you abhor
is what goes on beyond your door
where expression
and communication
must adhere to your design.

Once again
the message you send
tells us all
in letters blocked tall
that the sun circles the earth
and only a few have worth,
a few people who,
like you,
guard privileged lives.
