Reality

 Funny how
Almost ironic, that
 People judge so superficially
             By the skin
                        Face
                            Eyes
             No more than that
Mayhap by patterns of speech
How one dresses
Perhaps one's hair
 Mannerisms for those a tad more discerning as it appears?

             I think
                We're
             All much more than this
Outward collection
       Of our
          Selves
    I find what's inside
          Much more dear
                 So clear
          To me
                  That what we see
       Isn't quite what we be
Certainly not the complete me
Or you
Or he
Not she
     Nor they.  
               So
             Hey!
                 Let's not play
                             That futile game
Of
Superiority
      Based on
                  Such
                        Superficiality
     Or really
               On anything
                      Because
                         If
                       There's
                         One
                        Thing
                          I
                        Know
                        With
                    Ineluctable
                       Clarity

It's that not one of us is immune to that great leveler:

                     Stupidity
