us or them

just us and them


they way i am

we are

and they way

they seem to me

i judge

i deem

it does seem

all too often

that words

of a foreign tongue

whether aged or young

does cause me to quiver

and deliver verbiage

most unwelcoming and unkind

how to tolerate the now

and the ways things

are and maybe?

see it in your heart

to appreciate

what you got

and whom you are not!
