Weekly Scribblings -- what is seen?

its mine 

It's mine the little one hollered 
My rich uncle gave it to me
For me to have all for myself 

These words he said to me to you 
Haha haha I've got it now 
Play in the dirt the sand is mine 

All mine to have go find your own 

 - - - 

arrogance learned; aged, carries on  

The fields are mine better than yours 
The trees the lands the factories too 
All toys for boys not sissie girls 

My skin is light that gives me rights 
Harvard I've been I have you've not  
Money for me go earn your own 

Your houses burned leave mine alone

 - Rosemary has invited us to "create poetry or prose using Rob Kistner’s phrase “Human arrogance is boiling over” as inspiration. We aren’t required to use the actual words. But if we do, we should credit them to Rob on a footnote." 
 - I am using a Sevenling poem form which seemed to work for this writing (about the Sevenling poem form).

Selfishness is a unpleasant human trait encouraged by greed and others misfortune.

Jim, this is spot on! Arrogance learned / tolerated at an early age is damaging ... long lasting.

Ain’t it the truth Jim — “mine!” Begets the majority of evil in this world.

What Rob said!

Also, the childish tone is so very fitting.

Well Done, Jim! Arrogance can begin at a frighteningly early age.
