Could I win with canteloupe?

I surely hope so.

Could I win with the immigration laws?

I guess I don't know.

Could I win with the inter-racial couples?

I reckon we shall see.

Could I win with same-sex marriage?

Oh, don't hate me.

 

Should I speak of the poverty, the blasphemy, the adultery?

Should I utter or mutter or mumble or grumble

the bullying, the beating, the beastly screeching?

 

Or

Would I win with the winners

The teachers, the doctors, the policemen, though could be sinners

But the sharing, the caring, the daring to try and fall and rise

Of you and me.

 

Oh, should I speak of it?

You did.
