Manifest This!

This larder; so plain, no vision, unplastered.
Is filled with muck, shame; a disaster. Untoward words are spoken so clearly. Precarious thoughts appear so deeply. Rudimentary things are taken for granted. Radical things are rarely planted. A vision of such creates an image.
Commonly noted: Discrimage!

Power is privilege; it grows in rotation.
Poverty is laden.
Prejudice is hatred.
Scholar is wisdom.
Courage is war.
Prayer is heavenly.
So, Who is "Mockery" at the door?
