Reversal Of Condescension

A patronizing shift...
Has saddled them with,
A reversal of condescension.

The act of looking down on others from their noses,
Now has them exposed as those others oppose.

This did not happen overnight.
It took generations to inflict bitterness.
And to get others like this uptight.

This did not occur with a consciousness.
This took hundreds of years.
As enemies were declared...
To leave the innocent stripped,
And plundered.
To leave the innocent stripped of resources.
Diminished to leave them in tears.

A patronizing shift...
Has saddled them with,
A reversal of condescension.

The act of looking down on others from their noses,
Now has them exposed as those others oppose.

This did not happen overnight.
It took generations to inflict bitterness.
And to get others like this uptight.

Now the days look bleak and dim for them!
Those who believe they were above law and sin.
It is as if a pendulum swing...
Has come back to be swung.
And those who are now fresh victims of this,
Will find there is no place for them to run.
When the time comes and this is done!
