New Mirror Poem Comments on British Class System

Dedicated to the British class system and Islamic gender apartheid elites: to a decade of cooperation and support against the lower class and gender! (That’s irony by the way!!).
While recently travelling, and having time to look around, Marc Latham sheltered from rain, and saw it was falling as snow at a higher altitude. He thought it could be a subject for a Folding Mirror poem, and when it had absorbed into his mind a little later, he also thought it could be a metaphor for the class system. Here’s the poem:
Essentially Water, Landing Dependent
Snow falls on high
icing the mountains
evaporated droplets
randomly settling
above the dividing line
of temperature
Thirty-two Fahrenheit, Zero-degrees Celsius
longer falling
drop below the cut
driving hard
almost invisible
washed down gutters
rain muddies the ground
Marc Latham’s central site is the Greenygrey (http://www.greenygrey.co.uk), and he has books available on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/author/marclatham).
