"On The Outside"

Required attendance 
Yet superfluous and unnecessary  
once there  
out of place  
in the drunken alien celebration  
every weekend of the year  
Standing unnoticed  
Sitting ignored  
Free to observe  
the tribal dance around the fire  
Invited out of habit  
Mandatory appearances  
Yet resented and misunderstood  
for Differences  
pointless as a fork in a bowl of cereal
