Real fairness

Don’t tell me

everything is right

when we all know it isn’t .

Don’t pretend that

the world is a better place

when greed and corruption have risen.


If Jesus was around today

I sure know what he would do;

he would take the whip

of his passionate heart

and create this world anew.


Don’t tell me that

love is the answer

when we don’t even

know the question.


Don’t lie to me

and say it’s cool,

so just go shopping

and play the fool.


For even now the

voices are rising

and the people

are saying we have

had enough;

we have had enough

of the profit mongering;

we have had enough

of compromising;

we want the start

of a hopefilled day;

we want real fairness

that is here to stay.
