We are the unwanted, the broken
The ones you forgot about.
So don't be too surprised when we
Start to scream and shout.

We are the living, the dying
The ones you all put down.
But you'll know who we are when we
Run this goddamn town.

We are the corpses, the maggots
The ones you all despise.
But you'll be the ones scared when we
Expose all your lies.

We are the hunted, the lost
The ones you all spurn.
But you'll cry for our help when we
Leave you all to burn.

We are the losers, the winners
The ones that you deny.
But you'll be the ones damned when we
Hear the angels cry.
Thanks for reading and please let me know what you think! :)

Tastes like a more concise and visceral version of "If You Want To Know What We Are" by Carlos Bulosan.

Hard-edged. Powerful. 

Keep on writing.

Reminds me of what is true--
"We the downtrodden will run wild on YOU!"

Sorry, channeling my inner Hulkster there!
Love this poem...and it should serve as a warning for those Modern-Day (pre-repentance) Scrooges out there.
