By Design

They separate us by gender,

and segregate by race


They separate us by intellect,

and isolate by taste


They separate us by fortune,

and detach us by fame


They separate us by family,

nepotism to blame


They keep us divided

through life ever long


The poles ever widening

—too lost to belong


(Dreamsleep: January, 2021)
