"They don't think it is what it does, but it do." ~Oscar Gamble

I have something say. My words might really hurt.

Well, what I’m trying to say is that it’s a trigger alert.

As you all know, I’m a terrible person,

But if you don’t listen carefully, your opinion of me will worsen.

So if you selectively hear anything please be ready

To note it down to argue with me instead of taking at me with a machete.

People are sitting around, complaining about oppression,

But you scream in people’s face when they even dare to mention

The fact that you aren’t the only one suffering injustice if you can even call it that,

Has disappeared from your mind, and you can’t even look at

The true injustices of the world.

I’m super racist because I pointed out that Black Lives Matter is an overreaction,

A minor distraction

From the other 99% of the world’s death and action.

It’s millions of people united for a fraction.

That’s never a bad thing, it’s great to see the world can acknowledge something that’s gone too far,

But when I do the same, your hypocrisy is quite bizarre.

The movement has gotten better, that is something I must say,

But when I kept on hearing that every other day

A group of people went around burning buildings and beating up cops,

Trying to show that they are peaceful in ways that are not.

This hypocrisy really must stop.

Maybe it’s because there are people in Africa who die

While we’re too distracted to acknowledge their cries.

People in America, North, South, and Central,

Are joining gangs and shooting each other as we all go mental

Over crazy people who infect the world like a fungus,

Claiming that they were abused by “Hugh Mungus”.

People say that all voices should be heard,

But when you shut people up who are against you, it’s absurd.

I’m truly sorry to anyone who’s ever misheard what I’ve said,

Or those of you who’ve heard some propaganda want me dead.

Watch out for selective hearing, and you won’t be misled.

Please ignore the stupid lies,

And remember to open your eyes

To both sides of an argument so you do not despise

Innocent people who have a different opinion,

And stop wanting to fight me with the help of all your minions.

It's a bit outdated, I know. I wrote this a while ago. If you have anything to say or any arguments, feel free to comment. This poem made a lot of people either start to hate me or hate me even more.
