No Selflessness by Dylan Fields

No Selflessness
by Dylan Fields from Open Meadow High School
Published in the 2007-2008 WITS Anthology I Once Was Young and Strong (Available for purchase)

Nobody is selfless,
No act is for nothing,
The quarter you just gave away was in guilt,
The compliment you just gave was in flattery,
Mother Teresa did it for Jesus,
Jesus did it for the street cred,
I did it for the karma,
Karma did it for the fun,
But hey, that’s life.
