It Doesn’t Matter

Oh, yes, we need equality

Where everyone starts at the same


It’s doesn’t matter

That I have food to eat but no loving parents,

But you have no food to eat but loving parents;

That your dad is a lion at home and you the fawn,

Or that my dad is simply not home.

Yes, let’s all start at the same place,

Where you dodge gunshots,

Put to final rest your very, very best

Bud after he bled to death

On the ground of the red-lined district.

Yes, yes, let’s all start at the same place,

Poor, and brown, and even poor-white,

Because we want the American Dream,

So we support the rich and obscene,

Their abuse, their ugliness, their greed

And their predatory love for green;

Because we want a dream, not of equality,

But a corporate-like dream where we, yes, we

Can hope to be just as rich, just as powerful, and just as mean,

At the cost of equality.

Welcome to the American Dream,

So do you want to all start at the same place?

Maybe so, and so you want only you to finish up at the top?

And accuse billions of starving others that they simply don’t measure up.

We, so many, already start at the same place,

But it doesn’t matter, this type of equality,

Is our reality.
