(Thoughts on Society’s & Individuals’ need for “Social Microclimates.”)

14. Exclusivity/
Describes a community/
That’s special to you/
#haiku

15. Your community/
Is a “Loophole of Retreat”/
Wherein you matter/
#haiku

16. We describe outside/
To create a safe inside/
For our own values/
#haiku

17a. Exclusive language/
Is rarely grammatical/
It’s about changing/
#haiku

17b. Exclusive language/
Is rarely grammatical/
It’s evolution/
#haiku

18. Haughty Poverty’s/
Got its exclusivity/
To protect its pride/
#haiku

19. Power creates norms/
Which we must all sanctify/
Or reject power/
#haiku

20. There is nothing wrong/
Human exclusivity:/
Ego protection/
#haiku

21. Overvaluing/
The culture of the wealthy/
Keeps poor people poor/
#haiku

22. Wealth sanctifies some/
Exclusivity above/
Other people’s worlds/
#haiku

23. Valuing culture/
Simply because it’s wealthy/
Needlessly harms us/
#haiku

24. This sycophancy/
Toady to already rich/
Lacks real dignity/
#haiku

25. Celebrate cultures/
That you do not understand/
To improve yourself/
#haiku
