Rid the World of Rankism
A poem plea by Francisco Gomes de Matos

When we put a person or people down
There’s more than an act of humiliation
Because it’s on Humanity we frown
And commit a human rights violation

When we put a person or people down
There’s more than an act of minimization
Because it’s on Human Dignity we frown
And disrespect the wisdom of cooperation

When we put a person or people down
There’s more than an act of domination
Because it’s on Human Equality we frown
And of Rankism we teach perpetuation

But if we treat a person or people well
So they will share their place in the Sun
The same humanizing story we will tell
Our World has become a Family of One

One thought to “Art and Music”

  1. I like art it is a good and pleasant way to get a message across. I composed a poem last night about Dignity, but I am unable to get it typed in this box the right way. Is there some trick? Any way here is the poem. I hope you like it even though it is not in the right from. [Dignity for all] [What a wonderful thing] [It would be for all] [No prosecutionism, no bulling] [Dignity for all] [How much more efficient it would be] [If we did not make are selves feel tall] [By making others feel so small] [Oh! Oh can’t you see] [How wonderful it would be] [Dignity for all] [Dignity for all?] [Some people they might say] [Your full of half degested hay] [Your idea it just cannot stay] [Your a bleeding heart] [Your really not that smart] [Your Intellect is small] [Dignity for all] [Well I might be heading for a fall] [Wishing Dignity for all] [But maybe that’s not so at all] [Maybe Dignity for all] [Is! The only way, through the wall]
