Wise Words Of The Wise One

Wise words of the wise one i can only recall
That a fair go to some is not a fair go to all
A fair go is something that to all should apply
Though some of this of others do choose to deny

So many of a fair go in life of have not known
It is in fear and mistrust the seeds of xenophobia and racism are sown
A fear and mistrust that is based on feelings of superiority in a warped sort of a way
By judgmental people whose sort are not rare sad to say

Those who truly believe on a fair go for all i can only admire
And of singing their praises i for one cannot tire
They take people on their merit and do not generalize
Which on their behalf does seem fair minded and wise

If you live an honorable life and never harm anyone
Then to your mother and father you are a good daughter or son
Someone they ought to feel proud of how on one chooses to live transcends religion, culture and race
Since we are what we believe in and the causes we embrace

Some in their thinking sad to say do seem rather small
When they talk of a fair go they do not mean a fair go for all
The seeds of their superior feelings sown in racism and xenophobia and in nationalistic pride
And sad to say their sort are not rare Worldwide.
