Brother's keeper (Aladdin)

Once upon a time,

the beginning 'O' was never embroidered with gold,

life was void of materialistic tangents;

our modern albatrosses

 

But sufficied with compassion,

unprejudiced love from ones' neighbor,

so Aladdin could have a bite from one's ration

 

Aladdin never needed to rub the lamp;

his cry for help would be a stone thrown to the window

an undeniable call to choice

 

So let us be freed from our albatrosses,

no longer bystanders to crimes of brotherhood,

or humans living among losses.
