people who worry about a scratch on their car

and curse out someone who they imagine did it

and spread bad feelings


people who walk around the grocery look on their faces

push you out of the way to get to the ice cream


cut in line at the cash register, drive their car

like they’re in the Indianapolis 500

yell constantly at their kids


even strive their kids…


people who stare expressionless at the cashier

accuse her of everything from theft to incompetence


these minimum wage workers

holding down three jobs, on food stamps

living in a ratty, overpriced apartment


these people (I don’t mean the working poor)

drive me crazy, eat away at my sense

of living in a sane society, one of compassion

and spirituality…far too many lacking a conscience

a understanding of what fellowship means


here in America
