Class

Your place is decreed
by how you are treed
for one fruitful branch
can banish the need

to bashfully blanch
deprived of a tranche
or cover a cut
to stoically stanch

the blood when they gut
you and cockily strut
displaying their sneers
on jawbones that jut

so never show fears
when blasted with jeers
remember your value
for these are your peers.
