God Made Us All Equal--By Ron Larson--United States

God Made Us All Equal

When I get cut-off on the highway,
I try my very best to understand.
That old boy may have had a rough day.
After all, he's just a common man.

And when I'm standing in the check-out line,
And the sign reads: "Ten items, please,"
This gal's got her basket filled up to the top,
And she's standing there shooting the breeze.

Well, it's been said: "God made us all equal."
But sometimes I wonder if that's true.
If God really made us all equal,
Then equal must equal very few.

Now, it is just my imagination,
Or is everyone just like you and me?
We're all going around in circles,
Trying to keep some sanity.

  4. Ron,
    Great poem,
    I believe that we are truly unique beings. There are those that are rich, and are poor, fart and thin, etc. Even twins who look alike can have their differences in their personalities. Great poem.
