who are you? who am I?
wolves clawing at each other chasing at the top spot on this endless ladder
you and I me and you who who who

ranks upon ranks who is the most who is the least
grades jobs resumes building up this network of "achievement"
race pain oppression enslaved to the names given to the least of
what are we anymore?
human value placed at conception or even prior at creation the beginning
the great I am God decided we were worth the making we were worth the trouble we were worth the breaking worth the rubble of these towers of Babylon we keep building and building
human dignity inscribed in our hearts so instinctively we ache to see the least be free the least be free the least be free
