We’ve landed on the moon,
Flown past all the planets and close to the sun
But when it comes to tackling racism
We’ve barely begun.
We’ve crossed every ocean
And pounded our feet into every shore
But when it comes to settling arguments
We still go to war.
We’ve got super computers
And every conceivable machine,
But when it comes to gender equality
Nobody knows what it means.
It seems that the economic model
Works well for the few,
But when it comes to dealing with poverty
It’s something they don’t want to do.
It is time we started to address
All these issues that keep us oppressed.
For when it comes to elections
You’ll find you’ll hit the acid-test!
