Snobbery - Poem by Rusty Daily

isn't for weak-willed
neophytes who, for one minute,
question the superiority of their
self-appointed position.

the armor is
bullet-proof to humility,
opposite opinion,
and silly common sense,
hiding in the abstract wasteland of,
only I see.

humans have a right to snobbery?

mountains tower over
mole-hill minds.
oceans swamp
pools of bigotery.
canyons engulf our
shallow-ness.
rivers humor our
pissiness.

snobbery looks only down
to see inferiority,
never up to see.

    Rusty, this is absolutely fabulous. Don't forget there is reverse snobbery too, whereby those of lesser intelligence snub their noses at those who are smarter than they are; however, in that case, it provides the comic relief that is needed at times in our brutal world.
