What’s That Word Again?

The feeling you get
When you’re the new kid
No one asks your name
No one says hello
What’s that word again?

The feeling you get
At a party on Saturday night
Everyone is mingling
But you sit there alone.
What’s that word again?

The feeling you get
When you’re on a sports team
Your talent isn’t of the others
So they never pass you the ball
What’s that word again?

That word is exclusion
To prevent
Someone from engaging
To prevent
Participation
