Inalienable Rights by David Babatunde Wilson

Inalienable Rights
Inscribed and set down
In high sounding charters
And inspiring ideals

Inalienable Rights
Trampled underfoot
By militant boots
And despotic indifference

Inalienable Rights
Cast aside
By corporate assets
And capital growth

Inalienable Rights
Given nurture and growth
Challenging injustice
The potential of youth
