Color Coded

If I could leap up so high
That I could fly
Away from troubled times
Of times gone by

When color was enough to hang a man
Hear the despair, hear the cry
Most things come in colors
So why can't you and I

At times I hang my head in shame
For the evil done by man
To a human of different hue
Shame on me, shame on you

Were we all of the same color
Where would prejudice be found
Perhaps were my hair blond
Yet your hair was brown

Prejudice is like an acid
Oozing out through every pore
Destroying all it touches
As it destroys your very core

Asian, Anglo, Latino
Arabian, or of African descent
We are humans of this world
Let us live hand in hand
