MIDDLE CLASS
(1/15/15)


not
all of us
can be
doctors

lawyers

murderers

madmen

there has
to be
a dull glut
of uninteresting folk
in the center
of society
who deal
with the drudgery

who grease
the gears
with their sweat

who pay
the toll
of civilization

unfortunately
the failure
to accept
our middling
station
perpetuates
the existence
of murders
and madmen

as well
as the necessity
for the doctors
and lawyers
who tend
to them
