A Don’t take No shit poem

The message is clear
Early on

In the school yards
Where you had to
Put it into practice

There was shit
To follow you from
The bottom of your
Shoes on up

And through the years
It stayed

And the guys who took
The least back then
(or appeared to)
Are the one’s taking the
Most shit today

And the bus driver
Don’t want to take
Shit from the passengers

The workers don’t want
To take shit from
The boss and
Vice versa

The convict don’t
Want to take
Shit from the C O’s

And I don’t
Want to take
Your shit

And you don’t
Want to take
Mine

And here’s
This poem

Take it
Instead
