Too Prejudiced To Speak

They were fishes swimming in the same pond, but stuck up.
There were only two of them, but they did not speak.
One was polka dotted, the other was plaid.
Too prejudiced to get to know each other.

Taught by parents who did not know how to appreciate differences.
The entire pond had no other fishes, they passed each other morning and night.
For sixty years they passed each other, neither speaking.
Died lonely, and alone on the same day, neither mourning the other.

Heaven would not let them in.
“You have to go back and learn to appreciate diversity,” they told them.
They spoke for the first time.
“I hate you,” they told each other.
Not a great start.

I know you did. People who "hate" others for one reason or another when they have never even spoken to them are so out-of-the-field for me I have no answers at all.
