Funny People

A quick word was said
to update the minority in charge
in answer to the question:
How do we move forward
after all that has gone wrong?

The word was NO.
No one wants to help you move forward.
No one likes the agenda you’ve laid out for us.
No one wants you around when we succeed.

The minority didn’t react
for they didn’t receive
how unwelcome they are,
how contemptible they are found.

I just had to smile;
the fifty percent of presence
involving how you are perceived
is utterly untapped as the importance
is lost on them.

I had to smile,
and walk away
before I started to chortle.
