A poetic journey through my mind

Endemic to the Species

Attitude, prejudice, rumour and lies,

disdain radiates from bright painted eyes,

crossed arms and tapping feet, a language unread 

that poisons the air with words left unsaid,

laughter with ill intent, anger for fun,

cliques form and break like ice in the sun,

whispers and secrets and rumours and pain,

it circles around me again and again, 

as I watch it go by, my eyes see the truth,

the name on the signboard, “The Carousel of Youth”
