09 Nov 2016 – One Day

One day makes all the diff’rence in the world!
You held your nose (your choices all looked bad)
then wake to watch the flag of hate unfurled –
the naked fist of bigotry unclad!

One day makes all the diff’rence in the world!
You hoped your fellow men weren’t knaves and fools,
but you were wrong! You’re in a netherworld
where no one else is playing by your rules!

One day makes all the diff’rence in the world!
What’s missing? Just a simple, childish hope
the world could be a better place. You’re hurled
and find you’re sliding down an endless slope.

One day makes all the diff’rence in the world!
Grow up! It’s time to clearly understand
(and waken from the womb where you were curled)
you’ve always been an outcast in this land!
