Academia

They lied

Two words she said

Tear filled stricken eyes turn

Looking for answers

Searching mine desperately

I have none

The good ole boys' club

Won again

Don’t fucking mess with

The powers that be

Seriously?

Don’t fucking mess

With a disability

We’ve got this

You try and lay your

Head on your pillow tonight

I’ve cursed you

Your eyes in the mirror?

You won’t forget the sight
