Who are they – those others?

The world has become a world of others.
They are getting more than us. They are wasting our money.
They aren’t contributing.
The others.

The Others

We are the others;
you and me.

We: are the ones they want to roll over.
We: are the ones scrambling to make ends meet.
We: are the ones they want to keep unseen.
We: are the ones they beat down.
We: are the ones hoping better days will come.
We: are the ones who are too tired to fight back.

We: are the ones who lost the elections.
We: are the ones who lost the pensions.
We: are the ones who lost the jobs.
We: are the ones who lost the foods stamps and the houses.
We: are the ones without health insurance.
We: are the ones getting drug tested and part-time jobs.
We: are the ones without good schools.
We: are the ones who are too tired to fight back.

We: are the others, you and me.
We: are the shadows, the penciled silhouettes.
We: are an invisible nation.
We: are lost souls raising soulless children.
We: are the one who give up their future.
We: are the ones too tired to move.
Shame, shame on us.
And now it is over.
