A Fable

A Fable
Four little starlings
Sat all in a row
Up high upon the aerial
Thinking where to go

Three tweeted all together
Hatching a plan of where to fly
Yet one would not play ball
And flew off alone into the sky

He flew towards the sun
Intent that he knew best
Proud that he was his own bird
Independent of the rest

He ignored the other three
Who tweeted ‘come back here’
But Derek (we’ll call him that)
Thought ‘I’ve got this, don’t you fear’

Soaring on the wind,
He puffed himself with glee
“I’m so much better than those others
So much greater than those three!”

His ego was astonishing
His arrogance complete
Yet sadly he would not listen
Why the other three did tweet

For the sun, as he perceived it
Was not the sun at all
But a ball of fluffy ginger cat
Who became Derek’s downfall!

And in an instant with a huge pounce
Up high into the blue
Poor Derek met his comeuppance
And became this cats new chew!

So the moral of this story
Is listen to the team
For their perspective maybe the ticket
That helps you reach your dream!

Intolerant Society

Intolerant society
That always fails to see
The other side of the coin
That’s focussed on the “me”
That can’t perceive another’s thoughts
Or think another way
That has a mind-set that is fixed
That can’t see light of day

Intolerant society
Where is altitude view?
Blinded to perceptual vision
Failing to see the “you”
Where anything that’s different
Just simply can’t be right
Regarded so suspiciously
And laced in fearful sight

Intolerant society
A shameful place to be
A place that stands injustice;
Shunning diversity
A place where there will not be peace
Until the question’s asked
“How might that be, if in their shoes?”
Are you up to that task?
