race.religeon.politics.poverty.education.STATUS.responsibility.

A division, that is not hard to tell,
Is the division of the "status quo."
Or, those who go where no others can go,
While living secretly behind their veil.
The status quo crown is meant to be hailed.
A self-proclaimed title given to show
Status, to those who are driven to know
How the other half lives, when they do well.
This social symbol of separation,
Which they have carried with them for so long,
Is used to propel their elevation.
They, believing that there is nothing wrong,
Show social symbols of segregation,
By separating the "weak" from the "strong."
