"...equality for all..."

From "The Government of Death", by avant-garde musician - and little-known poet - Sun Ra:
all governments
on earth
set up by men
are discriminating
but the government of death is a
pure government
it treats all in an equal manner
it is a startling, revealing picture
of equality for all
and in the realm of death
is nothing else but
Via Robert Archambeau, who has an interesting discussion of Sun Ra as the outsider and the dispossessed.
