Not for the uninsured!  Not for immigrants! 

Not choosing people to lead!  These are not our tenets! 

I do not like them for brown folk.

And I would want it for those without a deity.

And I would want it for the LGBTs…

And I want it for the uninsured.

And immigrants. 

And to choose people to lead.  And to give this opportunity.

This is so good, so good you see!

 

So I will want it for women.

And I will want it for poor children.

And I will want it for brown folk.

And I will want it for those that toke.

Say I will want it EVERYWHERE!

 

I do so like

Democracy!

Thank you!

Thank you,

Tea-are-we.
