A Note To The Voters


Confined to poorness

In a world not fit for disableds

Why can't we have money like everybody


Why can't we be paid as rich

__as everybody else?

It's not fair

We can't start a family

'Cause you don't wanna pay us enough

We can't drive a car

'Cause you won't pay us enough

What kind of equality is this?

We ain't equal

When you work pays more

Even on minimum wages at part time

And you say we're being spoiled?

If we worked

We'd lose our medications

'Cause, honestly, even you could not

Afford them on your own either

So if you're tired of being called


Show me a real democracy

Not a republican bully, who

Supports confederates, in a country

That he as president says were

__all supposed to be Yankees by now
