    Alas

    If there was no white supremacy
    Emmett Till would have cured cancer
    Amadou and Hadiya would have stopped global warming
    and Trayvonn would have ended world hunger
    some young sister or brother in the Congo
    would have cured the common cold
    while another in Australia would be
    solving the mystery of the dying bees
    because we dont really know how much
    we lose with each child we dont treasure
    protect and educate to great measure
    as we wonder why there's
    so much trouble in the world
    every child born is precious
    but the rich one is given the best
    the poor ones are forced to have less
    and the destitute fight over the rest
    The little girl in the ghetto
    has genius in her soul
    the little boy in the slum
    has world peace as his goal
    Alas we'll never know
    the extent of our loss
    how much didnt get solved
    nor how much would've been found
    we'll never know what kind of lives
    we could have led
    how many would be alive instead of -
    dead.

    Do tell the truth to our relations:

    Some of all us us have to clean up our acts, lead by our examples, too...

    Teach, brother, teach!
