From Both Sides Of The Fence - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Intelligence.
And who has an abundance of it,
Will always offend those incompetent.
No matter how well they are dressed to impress.
Or address their material values,
To use against those historically oppressed...
With comparisons to make expressed insecurities.

Intelligence.
And who has an abundance of it,
Will always offend those fearing competence.
It shows in the way,
In who is hurting most today...
From both sides of the fence,
Exposing an overwhelming display of ignorance.
