A Victim of Elitism

by Viktor Tejada

Oh, here?
No one visits us here.
I know that they think that we’re not worth the journey,
and that we have to be the ones to visit them.
It’s stupid, really.
Completely unfair.
The higher ups (at least in their eyes), will lift everyone there is to lift as long as they stand on their level.
Anyone beneath them, they disregard.
Your pride is another slap to the face that we’re not good enough to be where you all are.

Selfish at the least,
a pseudo-intellectual feast.
I have every right to detest
if this is what our country calls “best.”
