Purple Nurples


Alice C. Bateman

What if all our skins were purple

And all our hair was green

Say we called each other nurples

There was nothing in between


No races, different colours

No origins, no past

Then we’d all be purple nurples

Maybe we could make it last


What if we all ignored our colours

Called ourselves Children of God

And there wasn’t any status

No more classes, no downtrod


Would we all then love each other

Or would we find something new

To choose to quarrel over

No doubt that’s what we’d do


We’ve got to make a choice now

All God’s children, one by one

To treat each other kindly

With respect before we’re done


God’s getting tired of how we treat

Each other and our Earth

Let’s all pretend we’re purple nurples

Despite the differences of birth
