Dignity is Not Based on Duration

Dignity is Not Based on Duration

There are people that we’ll never see again
People we meet at a party and then
Proceed to ignore
Because they’re not people to us,
They’re not worth the fuss
Of human dignity.

We build fences based on a duration,
Of an undefined relation
With a stranger.
When we know our contact won’t be long
We think it isn’t wrong
To write off the human person.
