As We Have

We learn as we live as we have been told
But some men do not grow wiser they only grow old
By their stated opinions in their ways they are small
Their idea of a fair go does not include all
The racists and xenophobics have never been few
One might say that this is not anything new
A fair go for all they could never embrace
They look down on those who are different to them in creed, culture and race
Of a fair go to others in their words they do deny
That we learn as we live to their sort does not apply
The people who believe they have god on their side
On their opinions on those different to them only know how to divide
In their opinions to intolerance and mistrust they only give rise
And with age they do not mellow and they never grow wise.
