What They Deserve

People -- they aren't equal

And don't deserve to treated

Equally

Rather, they deserve

To be treated

According to what they deserve

Some men are princes

And some men are paupers

And most are somewhere in between

Some men are kings

And some men are wretches

And some are the inverse

Of what they're just pretending to be

All men are guilty

And few men are free

And, oh, that's just fine by me

Slavery isn't a condition

It's something that you're born as

And never can hope to escape

For every fair thinker

And every true artist

There's ten million glossy-eyed apes

Let's speak of the spirit

And never of riches

And let's let true justice decide

What constitutes order

And what we should value

And who is to live and to die

Stories We Think You'll Love 💕
