It starts when you’re just a little girl, a little boy
The influence, the politics, the cajoling of your joy
Leaders lead as they attempt to try to select them,
Try to make you born to serve, try to make you lesser
The schools are all foregone by tactics of donation
Catholic, Private, Public, the quarterback is promulgated
As is the president, the juror, the teacher, the lawyer
The river flow, the timber grow, Huckleberry and Tom Sawyer
Stability is intercepted in a series of wits that are tested
to leave us all with another sense of restless
If you only know as a child what your parents don’t want to tell you
Your destiny awaits from your place within the family
Love thy labor, love thy neighbor, be happy with anatomy
What measures success? Is it money? Is it power? Is it influence?
What measures aggress? Is it lovely? Is it hours? Is it superfluous?
Measurements of diversity, get your spot on the panel or the board
Hesitant to be cursory, etch your name on the brick or on the cord
Your social status will already be determined for you.
That’s the truth.
