Privilege

Quiet and dignified

Speaking volumes

Without making a sound

Never conspicuous

Never outrageous

Yet with impact profound

Its presence obvious

In the indifference

In understated confidence

In self-assuredness

In expression of views

Genuine, or under pretense

Of concern for everyone

With incomplete understanding

Secure in the knowledge

That they are exempt

From the burden of comprehension-

This, stated sotto voce, is privilege
