Fuck you, they said
but they didn’t mean me
so
it must be you they want
to screw.

Impolite came to mind
amid
the hubbub of the
daily grind

I soon forgot it,
one hears
so much shit like this.

Condescension
is prevalent in an
irrelevant society
the way you look
at me
and
I at you
dictates
who and what we are
and if we don’t care
it doesn’t matter.

but we are being done over
there’s no mistaking it
it
really is time we stopped
taking it
and dished it out
instead.
