Short Stories and What Not

Poetry Day: Between Us and Them

Butterfly wingsIt’s been awhile since I’ve had a chance to write creatively.  Too much politics and world stuff have gotten the attention of this blog lately; it’s time to get back to basics.  Heard from our agent today.  She said she is going to start doing some gentle nudging.  🙂


Who created this line?

between us and them.

Who made up the rules

this separation.

We have the same heart beat,

walk the same way,

our skin may be different,

our language not quite the same,

so who said,

it’s between us and them.

Was it the politicians, the government

our religion?

Did we not come from the same parents?

the same DNA?

Who was that person, that very first one?

Who created these words?

Between Us and Them.
