the inbuilt sadism of tolerance

I learned early

there at school

from the tolerant

those teachers

who could be tolerant

intolerant

at will

in their pleasure

choosing when & where

to display

their abundance of tolerance

the sadism of none

for the unpopular kids

those from poor places

& the kindnesses shown

given to the fashionable smart set

& we learned from that

nothing changes

tolerance is not a virtue

but a whim
