High & Low

High & Low

It is not that I have anything against high society.
It is just that certain things puzzle me.

Someone posts, what he writes attracts readers.
And among them a former high-ranker
Whenever this ex-official returns to this place
This writer-friend gets invited
To a buffet at a haughty hotel
And he feels high and elated

I cannot help wondering:
What if his fan were not a high-rank?
What if his fan should be living in the streets?
What if his fan should offer a buffet of leftovers?
Would the writer still treasure the encounter?
Would he feel low and not as flattered?
