One Small Man | A Poem by Guy Farmer

One small man jumped on another
Man’s back and started pointing out
The imperfections he noticed.

One small man scrutinized another
Man’s face and told him he was
OK looking at best.

One small man picked at another
Man’s scabs, reopening the lacerations
That had been healing.

One small man laughed at another
Man’s mistakes and went home
To an empty interior.
