Melting Pot? Piss Pot.
In America we have great income inequality
Which leads to great healthcare inequality
Which leads to a culture
Where health is linked to human value
Where pre-existing conditions are a reason
Not to treat you, and where
Neighbors are not expected
To be kind to anyone
They don’t want to.
It creates a sort of caste system
Based on race, gender, health and class
And even though we’re all mixed together
Nobody’s blending, nobody’s melting
We’re just atoms bouncing angrily
Against one another, trying to get
A leg up in this piss pot society.
