The Universal Declaration of Human Rights
says we all should have equal dignity,
but is that the way we think
in everyday life?

I live in a big house in wealthy suburb
and you live in a small house in a poor suburb:
Should I have more dignity than you?

I drive an expensive sports car
and you drive a second-hand sedan:
Should I have more dignity than you?

I wear a bespoke suit
and you wear an off-the-rack:
Should I have more dignity than you?
