Affirmative Lament

Affirmative Lament

Dedicated to a diverse minority

Has the status quo not shown,
What we already know.
That all people are not equal,
And we will never be!

Take all the musicians, poets and inventors,
They have always been at education's centre.
They were all from a special gene,
Something rare that not all have been!

Take our present society,
We are made up of a variety.
Diverse and different we all are,
Try placing us together in one jar!

Affirmative action is forced on some,
Be they clever or be they dumb.
Is it fair on you and me,
Forever disadvantaged to be!
