The Apathy Poem

Kelechi Ihejirika

Who cares about this? Certainly not I
This becomes our mentality after junior high
We seem to have no interest in our education
Trump in fact is actually damning this nation
 
Who cares about this? Certainly not I
There is so much this country needs to rectify
In the classroom, what exactly do we learn?
And precisely how much do these teachers earn?
 
Who cares about this? Certainly not I
These deaths are so senseless and cause me to cry
If you say that I care, I’ll shake my head and swear
Because I am surrounded by apathy EVERYWHERE
