The song that played at your wedding,
money you spent on tuition,
the president you may have voted for,
Not ours to claim, they aren’t.
Amazon rainforests and coral reefs,
Your school building,
The girl who stated her views,
Not ours to abuse, they aren’t
The water all around,
The unplucked rose,
The body of your wife,
Not your right, it isn’t
But you knew that ,didn’t you?
That knowledge was wholly and surely yours.
