Sine Nomine - Poem by Ian Syder

Categorised by number
And paternal name (as added identification)
Standardised in blue and grey
Characteristically the same: So monomorphic

Social Darwinism is a form of common sense
For the uneducated
There is no schism within; harmony reigns supreme

Yet all peers discriminate
Between the trustworthy one and the reprobate
And what they will tolerate

Existing as family
Picking and choosing the circle, based on commonality
First name terminology
The first step to the creation of a fraternity
