“delight”

Powers may try to divide you
By telling you others look down on you
That only the privileged read
That books are unpatriotic and pathetic
This is something you can never believe

Harvard is not your enemy
Nor the immigrant who works nights
Nor the Amish soul reading by candlelight
Everyone is welcome here
through books we can unite
never surrender your access to
illumination and delight
