on top

on top
of the world is a pleasant place
to be,
as long as the world stays below

insinuation is what you-yes you
is what you do best
with a grin of steel
locked like bank-vault doors

as long as you stay on top
and send your beams of pity down
and condescend with false grace

we will stay,
with closed eyes staring the other way
you will stay on top
we will stay below.

written last year.
