I say ‘goodbye’

You say ‘chow’

I’m ‘well read’

And you’re ‘high brow’;

I ‘speak out’

And you ‘proclaim’ –

Different words that

Mean the same.

 

Your skin is dark

And mine is white;

That’s not a cause

For us to fight;

And though we speak

In different tongue –

We’re neither right

Or neither wrong.

 

Our bodies are

Mere flesh and blood,

Our souls make us

A brotherhood;

Life is short

We should embrace –

We’re all part of

This human race…
