Black people own slaves too and
I’m going to buy you your freedom.
Because your exploiters don’t know
the meaning of a 5 day work week,
an eight hour work day,
payment for missed meals,
breaks and overtime pay.
These are not only union rules.
these are human rights.
You deserve bonuses, employer
401K contributions and travel pay.

Once they have worked your body old.
It will be me that keeps you afloat.
I write this for both of us.
You deserve better, much more and
the ability to live comfortable in old age.
But don’t you frett we are moving on.
You laugh, but I have never been more serious.
You’re smart, talented, kind and considerate.
Believe me, we both deserve a bigger life.
If I can see it; you definitely can dream it.
