The whole world

If you want to see the whole world you needn’t go far. Take the bus. Go down to the market place. The whole world is right there. The rough and the smooth. The hard and the soft. The high and the low. The dapper and the ragged. The tyrant and the indentured. The bookish and the unbooked. The dreamer, the idiot, the swindler, the healer and the charlatan. The mercenary. The mistress of the house and the concubine. The well and the unwell. The beautiful and the ugly. The holy and the unholy. The saved and the unsaved. The unsavable. The irreconcilable. Open your eyes. Take a good look. What do you see? Don’t you recognize your own face?
