Peoples values are screwed today. Especially regarding others. No one is worth more.


Who decides the value
Of a beggar on the street
Or the Queen
Or President
Who decides
That a murderer
Is worse than 
The victim
Who decides a theif
Is worse than the greedy
Who decides that we are all less
Than Priceless
That every life isn't worth Saving
That a murderer should be put to death
For killing the man that raped his daughter
And got away
Who decided
That my life is more important than a murderers
But less important than the president
Am I any less than a human?
Is the murderer? 
Is the President more?
Who decided?
