Human Rights (Excerpt)

Human Rights, who are you? Privileges,
 that one can buy with money and influence!
 A set of ostentatious words on a charter,
 signed by all of humankind and then forgotten!
Human Rights, I wonder, where do you stand,
 have you always been on the winning side,
 such as in world war two, when Auschwitz was punished
 but Hiroshima and Nagasaki were not!
