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
