privilege

(inspired by the 2007 Golden Globe Awards Ceremony)

it is a privilege to sit at that table
to smile, sip the champagne,
and lean over to joke with others
it is an awesome power
to shape how we think

it is not fame we seek
but the right to relax
to kick back and change the world

upperclass? i think not.
such humble platitudes fall far short
we are world changers,
evangelists of thought and culture
models of who you wish to be.
