when i was hungry, you canceled my food stamps
when i was thirsty, you diverted lead & coal into my water
when i was sick, you tripled my insurance rates
when i was naked, you raped me & blamed me because i was naked.
when i was in prison, you enslaved me to corporations
when i was a stranger with brown skin you deported me
from the lonely you took away social programs
from the elderly, you took away meals & medicine

from the young, you took away school funding
from the victims, you took away shelter

instead of caring, you encourage isolation
instead of equity, you encourage military excess
