We can discover the package in which we’ve been delivered

Remembering it arrived without a label or price

We accept it as our own until …

We enter the social world and adopt their vice


Suddenly labels and prices are stamped on every pack

Black, white, rich, poor, good,bad, competent, disabled

All thoughts derived from an opinion

Causing regret for the package we’ve always had


Every package carries many labels and deserves their value

Remember it from start to finish, filled with love

Enjoy the wrapping you were given

And shed the labels and false pricing like a glove
