Heard it on the news today

A little boy found on the roadside
So easily marginalized,
Demeaned, trivialized:
This is a symptom! Synecdoche!
This is everything wrong with
American culture, writ large!
Big in the little! Exclamation point!
Just don't confront the terrible truth:
There is a little boy on the roadside.
