What am I good for?

I sit here begging for your attention,

Which by the way is never given.

But yet I make sure you never ask for more.

So tell me what am I good for?

You don’t open my door

or call to make sure I’m good.

But yet I keep your ass from being from the hood.

So tell me what am I good for?

I cook

I clean

I protest in your favor against mankind’s selfish ways.

But yet I could never detest your selfish ways.

So tell me what am I good for?

Begging

Complying

Never there for myself

But always there for you.

Is this all that I’m good for.
