I Don’t Care.

.

.

I don’t care,
if you’re battered black and blue,

I don’t care,
just as long as I can drink and screw.

.

.

I don’t care,
if you’ve lost your damn job,

I don’t care,
you’re just a kernel off the cob.

.

.

I don’t care,
when I see you begging in the street,

I don’t care,
I get to suckle on capitalism’s raw teat.

.

.

I don’t care,
about the elderly, the poor, or the weak,

I don’t care,
if the earth will be inherited by the meek.

.

.

I don’t care,
if the climate is warming, I’m so much cooler,

I don’t care,
in my penthouse I’m the boss, the only ruler.

.

.

I don’t care,
for those rolling for scraps in the muck,

I don’t care,

I really don’t care, cos’ I don’t give a fuck.
