Belongs To You – Written Tuesday 11th March 2014 (aged 38)

Belongs To You

perhaps your life belongs to you
maybe all those problems you have
belong to you,
your white working class entitlement
definitely belongs to you
and that means,
your bigotry belongs to you
but then,
there is a very long queue
ignorance, fecklessness, bigotry
they all line up waiting for the gruel
you live in a world of moral outrage
yet your own morals,
leave to much to be desired
it’s that white working class entitlement
even though you do not actually work
i wonder about your growing up
what bits caused the ignorance and the hurt

James Garratt – Tuesday 11th March 2014
