Mixing Of The Bones

If we could peel back the blanket of earth
To expose the bones buried there

Mix them all up in a great big pile
To say they'd all look the same would be fair

The rich man, the poor, the blind and the weak
Each gender, religion and race

The short, the tall, the large and the small
And include every shape of the face

If we had to choose one bone at a time
Not knowing who's bones belonged to whom

To make ourselves over new again
I wonder how well we'd do

Not judging by color, size or shape
Or status of high IQ

The bones might fit together just fine
And stay together till the end of time

    What a captivating write! Beneath it all our bones look quite the same and are hard to distinguish. All we know for sure is that there was a human that used to live and walk among the earth - the gender, the color, the race... is all just small stuff in comparison. Faving this beaut!

    Great thought / poem, especially considering that we all started out the same, all man kind from the same mother, one has to wonder how we got so separated ?
