Poetry – Playing by the same rules

Playing by the same rules

 

Playing by the same rules

That’s meritocracy.

No prejudice, no privilege,

Just equality.

 

Selecting the person who does it best

Produces a better outcome.

While using nepotism, racism and sexism,

Is just plain dumb.

 

Yet our country is run on class and privilege

Through an establishment elite.

They decide who rises to power.

They promise, lie and cheat.

 

It’s so hard to change the rules,

To create a fairer state.

Those who control the news and media

Are the ones who decide our fate.
