Hummers And Knee Benders

Indignities done to others,
As a custom.
With a dignified indifference,
As accustomed.
Returns to them to receive,
An unexpected loss of a felt empathy.
Shown by those,
Healing from political correctness.
And...
Once having an abundance of empathy to give.
Done without question to the ones expecting,
At least some to come to get...
From their favorite backs to stand on and crack.
With identities taken and their minds snatched.
To always be counted upon as easy forgivers,
Cheek turners, hymn hummers and knee benders.
But an awakening from that,
Has miraculously occurred to restore their pride.

I believe these to be concise in difference and a bit more clarifying to me of your points raised in the post... now on to name the offenders and the offended... compendia? conspectus? conspicuous? quaintly put also... thank you for this bit of a stroll through the 'Latin'... and your thoughts... All of the best from this life, to you, and all of your relations... Michaelw1two
