Your Meaning is Lost

Ostracize the oddities
Always been the modus operandi
Of the people of the world
Put the spotlight on the different
Make them uncomfortably stick out
But the clink in the armour
The sound that rings out
That they don’t know
Have little comprehension about
Is that they don’t have the power
To make the odd feel anything at all
Unless that influence is granted
By the unwilling victim
Who labels themselves as such
And if they choose not
There is nothing that can be done
For no matter the cruelty of the masses
Theirs is an opinion that doesn’t count
For in their terrible behaviour and bullying
They have lost the privilege
For their words to mean anything at all
