Brother Bollocks
understands
the desire
to elevate
the lesser
to a greater
level

to even
the playing
field

but
as we have
seen

people
can thrive

people
can succeed

within
any environment

whether
or not
the majority
consider such
situations
as suitable

we may
rob those
whom we uplift
of personal
potentials
yet unknown

we may
remove
their motivations

Brother Bollocks
believes
that the well-
meaning
are mostly
mistaken

that we
pretend to know
what is best
for others
when we
are unsure
of the best
for ourselves

some suffering
creates greatness

while we
all suffer
within our
own supressed
insignificance

fortunately
failing
in our quest
for universal
equality

a stultifying
sameness
of mediocrity
