Class, please open your books on chapter 3 About a period in time not that unique The best intentions unveiled by history The past has been written, let's try to read Will you remember? How we loved to play keep-away Girls and gays were seen as a different race Considering other races animals Treating animals as bad as beasts Will you remember? That we forgot to put things in perspective Future history, a past yet to come Will you remember? Progress was not us moving ahead It only meant the rest was moving back Having more future in front than past behind What harms us most now never came to mind

Mother married the minister, she got divorced because of the abuse Sold her body to the businessman, as before, the kids got bruised Mother's task, to look after us, disregarded by her taste in men Best for all would be to stress: please, be a single mom again We, the kids, file for divorce We, the kids, had it with these conflicts of interest Keep in mind the welfare of us all Keep your eyes focused on the ball

Our tourist shades show us a dark view A view of a world that needs our help Instead of our so-called ‘development’ Take off those shades and see that there is a chance Once they have something to lose Something that they want to live for We can't afford it But we can avoid it Our economy objects, we cannot afford their development Well, neither can we afford to fail our moral responsibility Because we can and we should

Pink Print 03:08
I would hate this to sound sexist: “This goes out to all the girls” So few here; girlfriends, wives and cooks, from the back of the room, only here for the looks? I hoped we could provide a safer alternative In this gated community, but it seems we've failed Contrary to popular beliefs girls are not just donuts How we warn our daughters shows how civilized we are What do you expect, examples given and standards set? How we treat our maids shows how civilized we are Stop burning the witches, burn our blueprints on their stakes And use the second sex' craft to bake a pink print for a change
