Mamma Didn't Raise No Fucking Princess

Roderick Campbell

by Janne Robinson

Don’t go in there

Why?

There’s some pee on the floor?

The toilet seat’s never been cleaned?

I’ll have to hover and squat and not touch the wall,

for shit’s been smeared upon them?

 

Mamma didn’t raise no fucking princess

toilet paper’s for the rich

just give it a shake

and wash in the shower later

the people here sleep on wooden slates

have saunas and sweat the dirt out

instead of showers

their bodies know not of hot water

in showers

 

They can’t complain about lumpy pillows

sagging mattresses

for they sleep on wooden slates

where the cold seeps in

and stays till the morning

 

The 13-year-old daughter

works 10 hour days

for $80 a month

black hands from polishing shoes

under the yellow sun

because her father’s an alcoholic

and her mother can’t support four children

 

So no, I won’t piss in the privileged toilets

I’ll squat a little

so I can remember what I have

and where I could have came from

getting dirty in doses

does mounds for our humility
