Poetry – Barely Begun

Barely Begun

 

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!
