Mr & Mrs Neophyte ©

How funny how we do not judge

It’s not PC, and it’s just not right.

Father, taught us after all:

Only the Lord – in his might

Can treat us like – Mr OR Mrs Neophyte!


So, why is it, when opinion matters

Does the clapperboard cruelly clatter

On those we cannot see – eye to eye

Instead we see – Mr Neophyte!


Beginner at this, Novice at that

You cannot justify thereat!

You are a plane, above your height

Accept you place – Mrs Neophyte!


With reasoned argument out the door

Who dare enter, to take the floor

Pick up the flag, carry the fight

Then accused – a Mr Neophyte!


So all topics are agreed,

Superiority rules, to discuss no need;

Everyone knows to brutally stop on sight

An appearance of – a Neophyte!


But on occasion you may see,

a person with troubled expression:


Hiding anxiously in corner

Biting lip, ready to disorder

In the shadow, from the light

A potential – Mr or Mrs Neophyte!
