Some More Equal

I regularly attend monthly meets
of two professional bodies
that feed me with knowledge
insights and  rejuvenation

A camera zooming in at tea time or later
will show one having many suit booted attendees
and the other, having hardly any
I feel at home, more comfortable
in the latter group than the former
though the former has a trifle more
interesting topics and speakers

Now, don't get me wrong
I have nothing against the attire, physical
of the colonial masters of yore
it's more to do with the subtle
snooty, snobbish air that go with the clothes
body language that proclaims
"We are superior" to the 'unsophisticated' natives!
