Call to the Common (Quatrain)

To see who you are now, take a look at your history.
Often the stories of the past are
Persons of wealth and power are glorified.
Why is a mystery.

After all, it was the lowly left to bleed
while the elites stayed home to breed.
The common person lived in the ruling mass’ shadow.
This injustice should not continue…agreed?

Now people of the ghetto
don’t think you have no wisdom to bestow.
I assure you the tales you have are the choicest.
To all those who dare to raise their voice…Bravo!

Even if you are the coyest,
people say your stories are the crudest,
and beg you to leave this task to the aptest
please don’t take it to heart because your stories are the richest.
