Editor’s note: The Daily Sentinel does not typically publish poetry. An exception was made for this piece of writing read during a recent morning huddle meeting at Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital.

Ruby, Topaz, or Emerald,

There’s a placeholder for every gem.

Racing, Tennis, or Aerobics,

There’s a pedestal for every champ.

There’s a place for everything!

There’s room for everyone!

Car, bus, or Airplane,

Every running motor has a lane.

Flying jets, big or small,

Theirs a chance to take off for all.

There’s a place for everything!

There’s room for everyone!

Bollywood, Chinawood, or Hollywood,

There’s a charm on every silver screen.

Spanish, Chinese, or English,

“Behold the Best, Evict the Evil.”

That’s the message in every language.

Hindu, Muslim, or Christian,

“Love and Peace!”

Every religion stands for the best.

There’s a place for everything!

There’s room for everyone!

Brown, Black, or White,

No way to disrespect or discriminate.

Poor, Middleclass, or Elite,

No chance to disdain or dominate.

It ain’t anyone’s privilege.

Nor anybody’s cribbage.

Stand up for whats your right.

Don’t fall asleep, till your sky is bright.

Because there’s a place for everything!

Cause there’s room for everyone!

There’s a place for everything!

There’s room for everyone!
