Sneer, Sneer - Poem by Linda Hepner

Sneer sneer with all your might
At those whose minds are whole,
By sneering you put folks to flight
From Bi- to choose one pole.

One pole is landlocked, set apart,
Fools travel there alone
With just a flag to mark their start
And no land telephone.

The other watery pole is near
Connected to the land
By we who brave the floes and fear
Abysses small or grand.

Where angels fear to tread fools ply
Their way, but are we wise?
Not severing our links we try
To understand where lies

Magnetic north, the polar star
Which guides humanity;
The other continent lives far,
Gone from banality.
