The paradoxes of high improved and obscured sociates

That is truth, 
in England  
all people have looked as polished talents and genius,
even a driver there
or porter, or steward, 
or begger, or trader, 
or stealer, or priest, 
or head of ministry
do not work without great quality and service. 
There is, seem, only one stupid man - mister Bean, 
who prevailed all brilliant persons given together.
They are all have made themselves
as they want and planned
through successful work 
and competition
in various branches and activities
of high improved community, 
while the others unlucky
inhabitant of authoritarian countries, 
post-soviet states
and Islamic caliphates
as the Iranian regime 
that must proud only with Omar Hayam
in last millennium, 
have had a very small portion  
of really famous and respected men
or just intrinsic  professionals. 
And their waste majority
looks like as screws in clock,s engine, 
or as soldiers in training camp of rebuilding empire, 
or as religious fanats in Friday namaz
or as new slaves 
in collective farm and weapon producing factories.

They have not any chances
for arise to personality
in terms of quality and standards
so usual for British community.

    I found this poem by following a search for the form - parallelismus membrorum. Yours may be the only example of the form found on Poetry Soup. I enjoyed reading your words today and found much to ponder. Perhaps the mystery is not so profound. Within any "successfully developed" culture there are many downtrodden, abused and used underlings exploited by the same type of powerful people. Thanks for sharing your poem, John.

    This is very interesting work, and my hat is off to you for having done it so well. I too have marveled at all the civilizations that are thousands of years old, yet their people starve, lack education and still have unpaved roads for a few people to drive their Mercedes on. Where today are the great ones as in yester-year.
