Fair Is Not Equal

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

(1-2-3 and...)
Make it stop!

You can not!

And this takes,

All you've got!

People from their pain,
Turn away.
And there's nothing anyone,
Can say.
Advice that's good they don't obey!
And,
A price for this some people pay!

To stop it not!

Fair is not equal.
People see this everyday.
Repeated sequels...
Relived by some who love to stray,
Just to keep a fake face in place.

Make it stop!
You can not!
And this takes,
All you've got!

Fair is not equal.
People see this everyday.
Repeated sequels...
Relived by some who love to stray,
To keep charades played...
Made to chase.

Yet it doesn't go away.
No matter what the price paid.

But make it stop!
You can not!
And this takes,
All you've got!

People from their pain,
Turn away.
To make it stop.
And nothing listened can be said,
To make it stop.
And this goes over people's heads.

(1-2-3 and...)
Make it stop!

You can not!

And this takes,

All you've got!

'Til it's dropped...
And gone!

People from their pain,
Turn away.
To make it stop.
And there's nothing you,
Can say.
To make it stop.
Advice that's good they don't obey!
To make it stop.
A price for this some people pay!
To make it stop.
A price for this some people pay!
To make it stop.

Fair is not equal.
People see this everyday.
And it wont stop.

People see this everyday.
And it wont stop.

People see this everyday.
And it wont stop.

People see this everyday.
