Selfish El Hijo De Puta

We go about our day; consumed by Kylie Lip-gloss,
Only when our own children are killed in a drive-by,
White people angry when privilege malfunctions,

Can’t fall asleep while mothers grind on a pole,
Watching on the news Arabs digging babies out of rubble,
Statistics climbing for Black men incarcerated,
How can the majority of people sleep; travesty never rests?

Ignoring veterans suffering from PTSD trying to eat,
Over the summer attended Comic Con in San Diego,
Watched geeks pay 60 per day trying to get laid,
Yet whenever the homeless asked for help,
Majority of girls resorted to booty on fleek,

Whether in the classroom, or sitting on a park bench,
People watching condemns the individual to insomnia,
Businessmen checking Backpage for the most beautiful escort,
For two years, Flint citizens consuming toxin,
Trump’s Walk of Fame star repaired in 48 hours,

Don’t understand how people can sleep?
How ordinary pain has become; only when it touches you,
Does the medic come to the rescue,
