I'm really intolerant of the intolerant.

Protest your indifference

to race, gender, religion

in a different breath

to the one in which

you condemn

viewpoints different to your own.

Dare to defy stereotype

and blink

before judging by the cover.

Maybe the infinitesimal pause

will last long enough

for a thought to halt your hypocrisy.

The apparent simplicty of the poem has a deeper meaning than might appear at first sight,but that way it works all the better. Good work. Great theme.

Thanks. First thing published. I'm glad you like it. It came from a conversation we had one day at a rehearsal for a play.
