Castles of Superiority Built on Air

Somehow, they all forgot 

that they were blown around 

in the dust of others,

ridden with desperation. 


On the same sidewalks as 

the pigeons that were found 

scavenging the trails of others, 

ridden with frustration. 


First they lived vicariously through 

those of polished professions,

then they speak patronizingly


those in their own

previous footsteps. 


First came the children on the playground

that felt entitled to the first ride on the swing, 

then came inexperienced shells of authority 


quenched their thirst by

stepping on the pigeons.
