check it

Dudes check it out. I hella wrote a rhyme when I was supposed to be writing a paper. Picture me saying this like spoken word...


Systematic social ills caused by macro level neglect
Politicians protecting their pockets and other people with power
while families are torn apart by lack
Lack of access
To employment and education.
Lack of political voice and representation.
Lack of buy-in at the decision-making table
Lack of will? NO
Those who lack work the hardest of all.
Working for money
Working to earn back their dignity
Crawling in from the margins, hoping they won’t be turned away again
PARIAHS. UNTOUCHABLES.
How could someone get this low? This desperate? This far from center?
They were put there.
By our systems.

I want this in someone's shit
