uniquely une-i-cue

everyone is unique

just like fingerprints

or ears

or blades of grass

so why the clique

the pickle-bottle label

even identical twins

are different

i know a pair

one has a freckle

one doesn’t

by outward signs

i’ve no idea which

is which

my ears aren’t even

carbon copies

one has a dimple

so why paint with

a broad brush

saying everyone

is unique

is just a fluffy way

to say no one

is the same
