Fairness is Rising
A day to celebrate
A time to congratulate.
The people who believe more fairness
In housing is needed.
Housing is a human right.
We truly believe
People shouldn’t have to live on the streets.
For years, every day we shed new tears
For those who died because of the lie
That there is no housing fairness.
For seven years we have been doing what we do:
Fighting for the right housing
For the mother and child.
The old person who should know the price
Of housing and a home and a home
Will not leave them alone
To die in a shelter bed
It’s not right.
The mentally ill, the sick and the poor
People for fairness, say no more. No more.
Leaving our elderly on the streets
And in shelters to die.
No more young families
Asking why no housing me us.
I was born in D.C.
We were no more people.
Living year-in and year-out without a house
No more stadiums b3eing built
While the people’s spirits
Are being killed
Housing in my home town,
Only housing for the rich
People for Fairness
Will keep advocating
Fairness is Rising.
