Jelly Babies

Jelly Babies

A Poem by Sianna Reader
"

I always thought Jelly Babies were pretty fantastic...despite the fact that they make me ill.

"

 

 Jelly Babies
 
Why can’t we be jelly babies,
In both colour and size,
And find some acceptance
In this world full of lies.
 
What does it matter �"
If we’re big or we’re small?
Is it that much of a problem?
If we’re tiny or tall?
 
What is the difference?
Yellow, white, black?
We’ve swayed too far back now,
We’ve gone off the right track.
 
Why is there outrage -
If a boy loves a boy?
Love is just love.
It should bring us all joy.
 
Is disability so ugly?
There's no one to blame.
Who cares for the careless?
Their views are insane!
 
Should there be conflict,
 And should there be shame,
Let’s try some uniqueness,
Let’s not act the same.
 
Why can’t we be jelly babies?
In both colour and size,
And find some acceptance
In this world full of lies.

I think this poem really captures the key challenges to bigotry that are so important to address. "Jelly Babies" helps deal with the topic in an unpolarizing way.
