Dollar Bills Walking on the Beach

They say at Fyre, they’re using

Tents bootlegged from disaster relief;

Which makes me think—

We can pay such keen attention

When those who are brought

Far from home and given stiff rations,

Have bought their own damnation.


Our fascination comes not at the conditions,

or else we’d witness more of the poor,

But in deference to those who paid good money

and were shorted.


In short,

We only care to hear your story

if you can spend tens of thousands

on a luxury music experience—


We ain’t got the time.
