I have no qualms, unless

 

Have No Qualms (2001)

1.   You have no respect for me:

I am poor.  I have no qualms.

 

You find no charms in me:

I am a boor. I have no qualms.

 

You believe I’m slow in the mind:

I am doing my best.  I have no qualms.

 

You think that I’m a loser:

Show me a genuine smile, please.  I have no qualms.

 

2.   You rob my people of their wealth,

You leave them homeless and impoverished,

I have a qualm.

 

You deprive my people of their rights to choices,

To reach the best they can be,

I have a qualm.

 

You trample on my people’s liberties,

To fight, to reclaim their humanity,

I have a qualm.

 

You spread poisonous prejudices of my people,

Though they are as good as your prejudices

I have a qualm.  I do.  I do.
