the speech

you need to,

pull yourself up

by the boot straps.

suck it up

soldier on.

“everyone’s afforded the same opportunities”

bullshit speech.

That speech is spilled by

those

With boots.

And bootstraps.

Those without,

Don’t give a fuck about your speech.

Your productivity

Your mentality

Your wellbeing

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

Of nothing.

They can tell you about their education

That was life.

But the bootstraps?

Bootstraps make no difference,

to the Reality, that is.
