(Poem) Getting What We Deserve

Getting what we deserve but who decides this

Born ugly and poor you learn how to fight or cry

We think that just because we were born, we’re owed

If you don’t give it we learn how to get it anyway

We deserve everything that you have worked and earned

Smart guys learn how to live or to die young trying

Get now while the gittin can still be there to get gotten

We deserve all of this wealth that drips around us

Disagree with me my friend and a dirt bath awaits you

Truth is when we are dead we will get exactly what we deserve
