The Wise

Can all men be equal?
The hopeful asked.
Never, said the disdainful.
Can a hill ever be a mountain?
Or a river, an ocean?
Can salt be sweet..
Or a lion bleat?

I don't understand
Said the confused
What is the diference
Between diversity and inequality?

You think too much
Said the wise.
Smiling and filling his pipe
As he was dragged.

Where to? They asked
Heaven or hell?
They are the same, he hollered back
