Unequally yoked is our lot
yawning gap of consequence
easily seen when we look.
By religion or generation gap
by skin color or social class
separation is easier than unison.
The elders will approve in turn
when their dogma supports boxes formed
by the high walls of different ones.
These choices are made by my friends
thought not exclusive to my peers
also associates and strangers same.
Some are forced to keep the distance
miles by land and philosophy
from the company of this humble soul.
In the end I'll respect these wishes
desires to not speak to me
these people who must keep their distance.
