Cute little white boy thinking
he can write Thinking he has prose
thinking he’s got what it takes


He’s got too much. Never had to
take a thing, always handed to him
always things gifted him on a silver platter


He’s got that will, that nerve to
do something nice that uppity treatment,
stupid privileged​ white boy


And what’s he saying? What he’s saying is worth nothing
because he doesn’t know what dirt feels like
not when his fingers and palms are permanently stained

leave it alone white boy no one needs
your help no one needs your opinion
go fight your own battle
