Two Kinds Of People - Poem by Gary Revel

it is said by many
that kinds of people are not a few
lifestyles, skin color
eyes brown, green, gray and blue

soft voices, shrill laughter
sing songy rhythms, dull monoloques
eyes that sparkle like stars
teeth that shine brightly or teeth that rot

so many kinds of people
could it be that it's really not true
maybe all kinds of people
are really one or maybe just two

some I have met do a lot
with little no thought what they have not
others are quite content
to do just a little with a lot
