the streets of a third world

All we seem to do is complain
But what do we really have to complain about?
What are our worst problems?
Fighting with our friends,
Failing an exam,
Getting “fat”,
Or will I break a nail?

Do we have to deal with things that really hurt?
Not having a proper home to go to
Not having food to eat
Wondering when your next clean drink will be
No worries about getting fat, because there is no food

People are withering away to nothing
They have nothing
Nothing

And we’re still worried about breaking a nail.
