A young woman approaches him and
Voices her concerns which,
As usual, mean nothing
To him, after all, she’s
From the other camp.
He condescendingly lectures her
On right and wrong,
His moral code trumping all others,
Invalidating anyone who
Isn’t like him.
He tells her to listen but
Doesn’t extend the same courtesy,
Without a hint of understanding,
He kills another dream.
