Because Everybody is a Body

I say
Everybody should have rights
Because everybody is a body
And therefore should sleep sound at night
Free from prejudice, free of strife.

It shouldn’t matter where you are
In America or Myanmar
In Germany or Cote D’Ivoire
If you use dollar or dinar
If you worship man or star
Or if you simply come from afar—
Everybody should have rights.

I say
Our hopes and expectations
Should never be suppressed
We should feel free and safe
To dream away our stress.

I say
It shouldn’t matter to what we strive
Our goals and thoughts inside our minds
Only that we breathe and thrive—
Everybody should have rights.

I say
We all deserve human rights
We all deserve human rights
We all deserve human rights.
