Legalities

Standard

Lawful is awful
There’s no fool
Just poor
It’s just this injustice
This fist clothed in law
Laws for the wealthy
To help them get more
It’s just this injustice
That steals from the poor
I will not abide
By the force
Of such law…

Holding

Standard

Having

Nothing but the breath

I hold

A moment in my lungs

To let it go

I’m free

 

Going nowhere

I go everywhere

In mind and heart

I care to fly above

Below I know

This only thing

I do not know

I cannot even

Grow am grown

Torn down

Without a frown

No tear or thing

Too dear to weigh

Me back I lack

No thing I need

Only the air

And to be fair

Between us Just

A must

Concede this only

Always lonely

Without truth

Equality

Standard

When I’m with

Without

I am so lost

In losing land

Am tossed

Where we

Who were not born

As pumped up winners

Have to swim

For all we

Would be worth

If circumstances

Turned from birth

In favour of the

Whole of human race

The face of us

The pace of us

The ways and means

The grace of us

Would be so different

You see I see

Eye to eye with me

Ourselves agree

We be let free

Within perimeters

Of safe with us

And never out of side
