Shadows of Our Past

We live in times troubled by the shadows of our past

Scenes of dominion, conquest, and segragation into castes

The strong they made decisions,

Made others yield and obey

It was what was normal then

Way back – just the other day

We strive to all be equal

At least in dignity and rights

But the shadows of our past

Can over us still benight
