Hold on to the Heart You Were Born With

born with hearts for all
the children
use them to play ball

Bigoted parents
begin the fall
as they teach their kids
to erect a wall

The hate they teach
then brings a squall
the size of which
is never small

The storm then rages
for mans great shortfall
the result of which
forms his worst pitfall

We once had hearts
as I recall
that's right, together
we once played ball

But now it seems
as we've grown tall
the lessons of bigots
have brought our downfall
