Hey Fat Man

A stranger asked me…'hey fat man, why are you so fat'
That's like saying 'hey nigger man, why are you so black'
For in my country tis' of thee, we’ve seen the same type of hardships
Hatred and discrimination based on physical, discarded…
From the rest of our society for reasons that we can't control
You probably think I eat all day pressing on remote controls
But the truth is that sometimes I wish I could remote my soul
While living outside my own flesh dig myself out this hopeless hole

[Hata Bildir]
