Through the sands of time it has been with us

It rejects the good

It embraces the worst

It is ignorant to a point

And wise with a drop of lime

It has been corrupted by greed, religion, ignorance and self want

It has oppressed the brilliant, the weak, the emotional and the mighty

It has soared seeds of discord

Infringes on the rights of the oppressed

Been used for self gain

Been used for wealth

Been used to oppress the society

It has been used in arguments

It has been used to keep out progress

It is a thorn in the flesh of everyone’s breast
