Second Class Citizen (Louis Toliver Jr - USA/Austin, Texas)


I pledge allegiance to the United States
The place that has led me to feel like
Just a second class citizen

Sisters are fighting wars “there”
While men, here, still doubt a woman as a strong leader
Just asecond class citizen

Brothers are fighting to love “here”
For a legal piece of paper that doesn’t even say, “I love you”
Just a second class citizen

Just a second (sometimes third) class citizen
That votes like I should

Just a second class citizen
That (for the most part) obey laws

We’re second-rate currencies
So our tax money isn’t good here
