you need to,
pull yourself up
by the boot straps.
suck it up
“everyone’s afforded the same opportunities”
That speech is spilled by
Don’t give a fuck about your speech.
Your moving forward.
Those who talk of crime,
Where there is no crime.
Those who talk of homelessness,
In their homes.
Those who talk of being cultured,
In their place of culture.
Those who talk of being more,
Where there is more.
Those who talk of being educated,
In their educational institutes.
Those without those things:
Don’t give a fuck!
Not about those things.
They can tell you what crime they’ll commit
When they’re out.
They can tell you about the home they had
When they had it.
They can tell you about their culture
When their culture loved them.
They can tell you about having more
They can tell you about their education
That was life.
But the bootstraps?
Bootstraps make no difference,
to the Reality, that is.
