A Heartfelt Elegy for the Class System

The poor are just poor ’cause they’re poor And Lazy They scrape themselves to the dole and ask Margaret if they’re crazy Or if they should be gettin’ better reception On their prison television. . I find myself fanning myself with my degree Because when they question their circumstances it really upsets me And why…

A Reason Why

There’s a dysphoria inside me It’s not what you’d first think It’s a gun that goes on and off in my head It’s the difference between who I am when I’m me When I’m in my head When I’m in bed This dysphoria and the euphoria- It’s the difference between me, myself, and I; It’s…
