Convenient thinking

When the poor want more money for a raise, they are demanding,

When the rich want more money, well they are more ambitious.

When the poor protest, they are rebelling,

When the rich protest, well they are fighting for a cause.

These differences I can’t understand,

This hypocrisy I can’t stand.

When the poor take to drinking they are hopeless drunkards,

When the rich drink, well they are socializing.

When the poor have no clothes , they can’t afford.

When the rich wear no clothes, well they are fashionable.

These differences I can’t understand,

This hypocrisy I can’t stand.

When the poor are denied their rights, they are not worth it,

When the rich are denied their rights, its human rights violation.

When the poor makes mistakes, they are careless,

When the rich make mistakes, well to err is human.

These differences I can’t understand,

This hypocrisy I can’t stand.

When the poor die, they are just dead,

When the rich die, well it’s a loss of valuable human life.

These differences I can’t understand,

This hypocrisy I can’t stand.
