I have a dream


“I have a dream” the great man said.

I have a dream in my heart and in my head

that no longer should there be any more ‘blood shed.’


For I have a vision; / a vision of tomorrow.

So come follow me, let us lean on each others shoulders.

Let us be to each other, ‘sisters and brothers.’


I have a plan; / a plan for all of humanity.

A plan that will ensure that no one need be hungry.

Where we can all live in this world in fairness and in equality.


“I have a dream” the great man said

and so someone put a bullet to his head.
