Condemned for life

For the sin of not knowing

Not being capable enough

Having enough smarts or the wherewithal

To be a productive part of society

The ruling class

The go-getters, jet-setters and the like

Condemned for not being born at the right time

In water or to the right class

A castaway, a forgotten soul

Look away, and not for handouts or help

Look away from the stares

The eyes which burn through to the core
