Snobbery and Inverted Snobbery

SNOBBERY
A person with an exaggerated respect for high social position or wealth who seeks to associate with social superiors and looks down on those regarded as socially inferior:
e.g. “Her mother was a snob and wanted a lawyer as a son-in-law.”

INVERTED SNOBBERY: The attitude of seeming to despise anything associated with wealth or social status, while at the same time elevating those things associated with lack of wealth and social position.

Upon waking each day My first words to my heart always are “Tell me all your news of Love.” – Hafiz

Upon waking each day
My first words to my heart always are
“Tell me all your news of Love.”

Hafiz

We are a couple of barroom sailors

I wake from a nap
And the same clear words greet my mind
That I say every day upon waking,

“Where can I find the Friend?”

I eat and dress and labor
For only one reason.

But why explain about the essential today
And demean the holy?

We are a couple of barroom sailors,
Marooned,

In need of good drink and fine company
To true our perceptions.

Otherwise,
I get a tad concerned about that odd look
That sometimes creeps into your eyes–

That seems to mistake me for a pretty,
Available mermaid.

Upon waking each day
My first words to my heart always are

“Tell me all your news of
Love.”
