Should we not rightly ask what may be wrong
With our society and then address
Not simply what may make our system strong
But how we may correct our waywardness?
For how we reckon our prosperity
And claim our greatness as a civil state
Must be in terms of more than GDP,
Since only equity can make us great.
To be impartial, just and fair respecting
All of our fellow humans’ basic needs
But also reckoning and then correcting
The harmful fallacies of outworn creeds.
Above all else, we need to realize
Those values that will prove at last we’re wise.
