American Exceptionalism

I was late to work again
because I couldn't find my shoes
How am I supposed to save the world
when I can barely function

I can't sleep at night
waiting for someone to come for me
because I know
someone should be coming for me

Not being a bad person
Takes so much energy
not being a bad person
takes so much discipline

Can I be one of the good guys
and still afford to have my cracked tooth fixed
How can I be a hero
When I require expensive medication not to shit blood
