Irony [a poem]

I have found it easier to practice faith in the company of 'sinners', 
I have found belief in the hearts of those who apparently deny. 
I have seen character in the impious, 
and wisdom in those who babble incoherent. 

I have felt love in those who are frigid in presence,
and care in those who bark. 
I have seen earnestness in wretched dogs, 
as they are spurred with arrogance by those dressed in white.

I have seen something of the world.
Its reality is upside-down: an irony.
