Upside Down


don’t get me wrong
I do care where you live
what I don’t care for is
what you made it into

what is a ‘Northsider’
for God’s sake and why
do you consider they’re
superior to ‘Southsiders’?

no, I haven’t lived either
‘side’ and don’t give a
damn Southside is another
name for dullsville

if you’re right what am I –
an alien from outer space?
Am I just an ‘Upsider’
not used to gazing down?
