Diplomats can be oh so very diplomatic.
They recognize each other for this
and thank each other for that
and even when everything
is going sideways they’re
all polite and shit and
dressed in their Sunday
finest while non diplomatic
regular citizens struggle to make
their way through a puzzling barnyard
where they’re maligned, molested and milked.
Thank you, friend.
Diplomats don’t think, talk or act like regular people yet they purport to represent us.
Diplomas are right up there too.
