Privileged Logic

You said, you wouldn’t kick a sick and dying man,

If you found him lying there in the street,

You’d call an ambulance,

Like anyone would.

 

Good.

 

Though, I saw you the other week,

Full of seasonal cheer,

Walking past a beggar in the middle of winter,

Pretending you never saw him and,

Like everyone does,

You walked into a store and loaded up on Christmas presents,

While he caught his death of hypothermia.

 

Hmm.

 

(Merry Christmas.)
