The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - PREJUDICED

PREJUDICED

by

James Bredin


I see them every day as they try to stroll the mall,
Some of them are small but others are quite tall,
They wear large baggy pants four sizes too big,
And walk the slow gait of an overfed pig.
Droopy drawers down around their ankles,
Hobbled like a prisoner unaware that it rankles.

Are they looking for attention or just being dumb?
Is this their attitude or and should we all succumb?
Is it a symptom, they are stupid or just in disgrace?
Or is this intimidation straight in my face?
Should I tip my hand and show them that I even care?
Show myself a redneck and an absolute square?

I don稚 think I値l do that, not just quite yet,
I値l wait for an opportunity but I値l never forget,
I値l be politically correct and polite like all the rest,
And conceal the mind-set that I知 not at all impressed,
A narrow-minded politician might point a big fat finger,
Call me bigot or prejudiced and let the stigma linger.
