By Omission

they are young, beautiful
and certainly intelligent
they make the coffee
and serve at table
they sound exotic with
a foreign accent
they are different
they ask more questions
than the natives
but soon the politicians will
by omission or not listening
(it seems their nature to hear but
not listen)
but there is Hope!
as these non-natives drift
with some invisible purpose
to go home or
i suspect time will tell
in the midst of a bridle recession
the weak will struggle
(it seems to be their fate)
and the young natives have gone
still going
to the usual far flung destinations
to work, to sow wild oats
to live the rhetoric fermenting

About pmisteil

Hi, my name is Paul though I write under other names like, Thatcher and Paolo, I love literature, art and architecture their passion and drama....the contradictions. The notion of Truth-who is the person behind the mask? Or does it matter! I like long walks and longer conversations over cappuccinos in a cafe with atmosphere and the rest is a journey!
