- What Matters
Rings around the rosy cheeks
Are for the sickly and frail.
Books are for the shunned nerds and geeks.
Oh, the hopeless are thrown into jail
Along with the rejected Freaks.
How, oh how the forgotten wail
And mourn the deafness as they speak.
I beg you, I tell you I speak no twisted tale,
This is reality, not one for the weak.
People like us are left with the dregs
Of the upper-class perfections.
People like us are left to sit on the side of the street and beg
As the Perfect and Pretty People enjoy their tasty confections.
Incarceration is the punishment for being unsightly
Or gay, or smart,
Or just the unlucky.
Incarceration is the punishment for people like us,
But it is a haven, safety, prosperity.
