Selfishness

Sharing is caring is a load of crap.

I will not give you the shirt off my back.

My money is mine and you can’t have a penny.

Not for you and not for your family.

Get a job, you lazy shit.

Your circumstances don’t faze me a bit.

My pockets are full while you live simply.

Don’t ask for a dime, you won’t get any

One thought on “Selfishness

  1. This sounds like a political poem, definitely with some rhetoric. I have done some poems like this, actually using the rhetoric of different folks to understand issues from various perspectives, and allowing them to clash in a poem. That said, you might consider a poem that brings lots of voices together, that hopefully arrives at something, but even if not, could illustrate some of the clashes of words and ideas.
