Culture

This is posted in response to today’s one word prompt: ‘Culture’

https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/culture/wood-1772379_960_720

Culture       is       a       fence,

fixed     with     giant     stems

and    sharp     barbed   wires

of beliefs, norms and values,

to      set    me     an    insider

and  you  a   bloody  outsider.

Those        that         are       in

look             pretty           fine;

those       that       are       out

ought   to    be    rooted    out,

and  if   anyone        is        on,

they     are    frowned    upon.

 

For     our    benefit    or   not,

it’s      now        rusted      out.
