The Better Being ii: Architects of Etiquette

even the best tailored suit, tie or sock from Henry Poole
cannot disguise how stupid the fool who plays a joke on self looks
as he attempts to become something other than who he is
by emulating another’s culture and ‘cool’
like the newly wealthy coming from the east to experience the western school
just so they can feel better off than others of their stock back in the country where they belong
without realising that self-worth has little to do with what one possesses
or with conforming to standards set by architects of etiquette
because when one gains insight into class constructs as designed by man
it’s clear to see that not one towers the many
as long as people share a common humanity
and that a deeper understanding of being
disqualifies the notion of coming under another’s perceptual rule
and only then can one become aware of the fact that equality is kin
