Socioeconomic

socioeconomic.
such a nice word, a
neat package tied
with a bow,
a label to place on
situations too complicated
to fully entangle, too
hard to try to understand,
too
messy, because people
don’t like to get their hands
dirty--
socioeconomic.
never a word used to describe
those with more,
only those with less, or the disparity
between them, that widening gap,
a chasm that seems impossible to cross...
socioeconomic. 
a status symbol of those without
status,
those fighting to rise up
and get out of the cycle
those trapped in a
stereotype, a box,
a windowless cell without a
door that shrinks daily.
socioeconomic.
a word thrown around almost
carelessly, almost condescendingly,
said with thinly veiled disgust
and laced with false pity, a word 
used to gloss over
individual experience,
a blanket to cover that which
some would rather not talk about--
socioeconomic.
how can seven syllables even
begin
to express the experiences 
they cover?
