We are not children of a lesser people
We have been oppressed for long
And we've been fed crumbs
and have had dogs lick the sore on our skins.
We've been brought up to think that we are
nothing but servants in a banquet where
We deserve to be nobles and kings.
And some of us have fallen in love with
The idea of being lesser beings so much
Such that we repulse
any form of liberation that might come.
True there is an idea of supremacy that lurks
On my oppressor's vest.
I think it's time for us to let him know
That being on top is a curse,
rather than a privilege.
We must keep striving, informing and educating
And telling anyone who cares to listen that:
We are not children of a lesser people.
And so, we deserve not this injustice.
