Of Course I Care 

Of course I care
But my kid's ADHD
And my mom has Alzheimer's

Of course I care
I'm working 60 hours a week
Where's the time?

Of course I care
Look, my wife has cancer
Give me a break

Of course I care
Don't be silly
I donated, remember?

Of course I care
But I don't know any blacks, very few live here
What am I supposed to do?

Of course I care
I'm working on the environment
Isn't that enough?

Of course I care
I'm a woman, I know oppression
Need I say more?

Of course I care
My daughter was on opioids
Now I just stare at the ceiling

Of course I care
But I didn't cause racism
Why is it on me to fix it?

Of course I care
I'm busy
Can we talk about it later?

Of course I care
