in the cities, wide and varied,
one might think the hate long buried
then one sees the chalk mark there
giving passerbys a scare
in this wide and varied mix
what's the respect for ecclectics?
trendiness rules all the same
as in the suburbs; oh, how lame!
yet, tucked here and there abouts
are diversity's devouts
those whom know the episcope
isn't ruled by fashion's pope
