To Be Decided

The diversity of the world is at stake
The inconsistency of discipline is the cause
The many that are guilty go un-punished
While the remainder suffer without pause

The eyes of bigotry are upon the world
Societal standards unjust
The morals of many are applied to all
While all suffer the very same lust

The children of the world are in need
The right hand thinks that we are unfit
Parents they think we cannot be
Why, oh why, must we submit?

The needs of the world must overtake
The views of the few misguided
Who in the eyes of God are not fit to judge
The fate of the children....to be decided.
