People

Imagine

a new world—

a fresh start for 

humanity…

The inhabitants are diverse

like people here.

Divided equally,

everyone starts with the same portion 

of food and clothing, 

and all are given an equal work load.

Straight away, a shift occurs. 

The lazy take their place, 

not doing their work.

Overachievers step up 

to do the work of the lazy, 

enabling the lazy to continue 

being lazy.

The greedy take 

from other people’s portions, 

and the benevolent give their portions away. 

Artists twist their portion into something 

that makes people

think 

about colors, and shapes, 

and the diversity of people.
