glass bottom boat…

you stare
face pressed hard
against the glass
into the depths below
regally commenting
on the lower species
that have not
evolved
into you
had they but
tried
you say
they would be
where you are
bending down
staring into the abyss
of morose souls
bonded to the sea
of poverty and pain
but you are
certain
it’s all
their fault
no need for
concern
but
beware
my friend
hidden beyond your view
just beneath
the razor sharp coral
of discontent
lie
sharks
