On bigotry…

You’ve been waiting for a transplant for a long time
Now a poor man who’s matched has just died
He agreed to give up his organs at death
So is fate now at last on your side?

But, the colour of his skin is not the same
And you’ve insulted his race in gross measure
He donated his organs with love in his heart
To give life to another to treasure.

Add hypocrisy now to your list of sins
For you’ll take the organs that are given
Perhaps when you wake you’ll be wiser
And from you the ignorance is driven.

He was a man, he had a wife
He had two children too
In fact you stupid bigot
He was just the same as you.
