Put them all in boxes.

Boxes

Put them all in boxes.

Put him in a box, because his skin is dark.

Put her in a box, because her accent is different.

Put everyone in a box,

And slap a label on the side of it.

Keep everyone in their boxes,

Close the lids and seal them with tape.

Put him in a box, because he's dating a man.

Put her in a box, because English isn't her first language.

If you keep everyone in their boxes,

Nice and neat,

Nobody has to change.

Suddenly, an unknown figure takes his box cutter,

Opening each one.

Letting everyone out of their tidy homes,

Out into the world.

People talk together,

People laugh together.

Ignoring the boxes,

Ignoring the labels.

This is how the world is supposed to be.

Without labels,

Without dividers.

In the end, we're all in the same box.

We all have the same label.

What does that label say?

It says,

"Human."
