Huge Valentine

Can brotherhood be privatized
Did the monarchy settle for equality
Here in the west we either want
To turn everything into money
Or into an argument or a lottery
We think too much
Mostly about ourselves
Which is a good carried too far
But I thought that was the reason
Searching for the cure
They came to the foreigners' country
The squabbling smelly starving
Stolen children of Africa and Europe
And to the innate joy they took
In shared hard work done right
often under terrible conditions
Or none of this could have happened
All of us here in the most various
Landscape on earth in our time
