Culture clash, in a flash, the “other” is so strange.
They have it wrong, they must be dumb,
and surely I would know.
I see so clear, there’s no veneer, my insight never lies!
If only “they” would wake and say,
“You’re right – it’s us who’ve been so wrong!”
My perception, my reception, I really don’t connect!
I am the one that bounces off, the flow that’s evident.
and yet I see it not!
I am confused, my signals cross, and so I wander lost.
The answers plain, return again, to child’s humility,
and join the toddlers on the floor!
