tall poppies

they don’t like him
he isn’t like them
him with his nose in the air
towering over them
like he’s better than them
his big head full of ideas
his mouth full of big words
and smiling to himself
like he’s having a joke they don’t get
not bothering to come down
and associate with the plebs on the ground
and join them at the pub or the footy
or in a drunken brawl in the street …..

tall poppies,
that’s what they call the likes of him
and you know what happens to the tall poppies,
don’t you?

I’ve had students who would hide their brightness so they wouldn’t stand out. The need to conform, to be accepted, is strong.
