I’m With Groucho

There are group-people
and there is me. I’m
cynical about the motivations
of people who will bend
their values to keep
the boat from rocking

I’m not one to join the mass.
I’m with Groucho…. if a group
wants me, I probably don’t
want any part of it. It’s not
anti-social, it’s anti-conformity.

What happens, in a group,
when you dare have a
different opinion? You’re
beaten back to reality with
stink-eyes and gossip warfare.
Clandestine missions to
bring you to your
group-think senses.

I stand on the outside,
longing to be in…
but, knowing
once I’m there
I’ll only want to escape
the prison of sameness.

There are group-people
and there is

Me.

  1. This perfectly describes how I feel…sometimes. I remember I wanted to be in a sorority at one point, but I’m so anti, I can’t imagine doing things all the same.
