Human rights or human slavery?

Human rights, human rights;
Where is the human rights?
When the poorest people,
Who come from the poorest countries,
Do the meanest jobs in the world,
And earn the meanest salaries in the world;
And live the worst lives in the world;
How has their dignity been defended?
How have their rights been protected?
You talk of human rights;
You talk loudest as well;
Where is the human rights?
Is it human rights to
Enslave another
Just because they are poor?
Is it human rights to
Enslave another
Just because they are
Different from you?
Is it human rights
Or human slavery?
