Bigotry

ROBERT tAUB 1934 (WINDSOR ONTARIO)



BIGOTRY

The world would be a better place
If people would respect each others race
There are many people that names do call
They are nothing but racists and bigots all.

Freedom of speech and religious belief after all
Should be respected by one and all
But many people this do not see
And go on spreading bigotry.

If bigots and racists would just admit
That they are wrong that would be the end of it
Than the world for it would better be
And all could live in peace and with dignity.

“Bigotry is an illness that needs to be healed”
