that is what you did

if we
i
don't have enough money
to go
to college
or to
retire
properly
would you give me some?
if i couldn't go any farther
and we were running
from something
large and frightening
would you wait
for me?
please?
because
i would help
you
if we were
running
from crazy mad zombies
or the Taliban
or Napoleon risen from the dead.
i would
because
you are my family
in the eyes of God
and that's all that
really
truly
matters
doesn't it?
or must we only care
that you are okay
and pretend
that you
are not
trampling others
to get there first
and are not
stepping on
people
to get to the top
that you have caused
pain and
sadness
grief
and tortured cries
may fill the air
once you
are in charge
because
that
that
is what you did.
