Created equal

After Luke 17:7-10

All men are created equal,
and women, too,
at least in the same way,
but things change, like
light giving way to night,
and night to day, and
before we realize it we see
the hierarchy of things,
the hierarchy of position,
of rank, of master, of servant,
of poverty and wealth,
which is downright un-American
because we demand our equality 
with all people in all stations,
but then the word says we are
servants, humble, and it’s
our duty, it is our joy,
to serve what is greater
than we are.
