It Must Be Hard To Be You

It Must Be Hard To Be You

it must be hard to be you
with those infinite expenses
that your mom gives you
that her dad gave her

part-time job
must be intolerable

and your car
is low on

those sweatshop workers
must be so much more grateful
for what they have
after seeing
how rough life is
for you
