Here's An Inconvenient Truth

They don't give a shit
if you're a poet--
they want you
to sell your soul
in order to
put food on your table,
keep the lights on,
and have a roof over your head.

They don't give a shit
if you're trying to create
out of the ugliness of life;
wring truth
past all the bullshit
that the media tries to pass off
as reality.

Hell, they don't even believe
in the creator of the universe,
so why would they care
about what a poor little nigger
like you has to say?

Because they don't give a shit!!
