The Plight of Man

Location

Are you a man?

No one cares. You are just a man.

Are you joining the military?

No one cares. You are just a man.

Are you depressed?

No one cares. You are just a man.

Were you laid off?

No one cares. You are just a man.

Just divorced?

No one cares. You are just a man.

Are you homeless?

No one cares. You are just a man.

Considering suicide?

No one cares. You are just a man.

What would you know about oppression, hardship, or unfairness?

Everything actually, but no one cares.

Because you're just a man.

- End.
