Ingrate

Ingrate,
You scorn the humble beginnings that gave you sustenance and shelter
Like you scorn the scum that mars your tub after weeks of neglect
But let me remind you that the disdain running through your veins
Owes its existence to those same humble beginnings
That sold their soul to give you breath
