critical analysis

L Hine's photo 1908

Who are these people
Who insist on defining you
as good or bad,
worthy, trustworthy?
Who are these people
Who think they are God,
Able to say where you fit, misfit,
How you have to portray yourself,
in tie, black-tie,
lead yourself.
Who are these people
who sit besides and imagine they are more
who live and dress to superior looking others
who know them better.
Who are these dressed up people who betray you
at the very first opportunity?
Who are these people who find themselves
walking through life on some special carpet
entitled to something
you are not.
Who are these people
Who have a concept prior to any of your comments
’cause they will not allow you
to say what is deeply ingrained in your mind.
Who are these people
who believe they are more
wondering inside themselves
their real ideas are made of grass,
brass,
and for a slip of second,
you,
the entitled self,
Can just walk on by,
Seeing nothing else than the scenery
Knowing profoundly that nothing else exists.
Don’t cheat yourself
putting value on something
you don’t know other than soil,
mud
just made to exist.
