Mount Superior

Mount Superior
 
I find myself 
Wondering
How rarefied the air
Must be 
On the moral 
High ground
 
Is it altitude
Sickness
That causes 
Blindness
Inability to see 
The possibility of pain 
 
Caused
By the stones of
Judgement
Rained down on those
Who don’t look
Like you
 
Who don’t think
As you do
Who don’t believe
As you do
Who don’t live
As you do
 
Many who climb this mountain
In order to comment on the
Ubiquitous cyber world of news and current affairs
Lighten their load
By leaving their true identity
At base camp
 
Some obviously have
Multiple degrees
They are psychologist
Health expert
Philosopher
Law maker….
 
This plethora of degrees
Equips them
To share their hard won
Expertise
Under intellectually inventive
Pseudonyms
 
During their gruelling
Years of training
Many miss the odd subject
Compassion
Humility
Empathy
 
Strangely
Moral principles 
Appear to have
No place on
The moral high-ground 
Of Mount Superior
 
Tricia 30/4/12
 
(Of late I’ve found myself frustrated by the rush to judgement of many media commenters. This is my response.)
