#AtoZChallenge2020 – Oh People


So my post for the letter “O” for the #AtoZChallenge2020 just popped out at me and slapped me in my face. It said “Boy if you don’t post me as the song for the letter “O” , you must be crazy.”  In the light of #COVID-19 around the world and the current individual in the White House in these not so United States of America, this word just speaks volumes.

I have chosen Patti Labelle’s Oh People and I have included the lyrics because they are so relevant to what is happening in the world today. I pray everyone who reads knows that I send love, hugs and prayers to you and yours as we make our way through this crazy life journey!!

That’s what’s in My Rattled Cage, thanks for stopping by!!


If we are one big happy family, no one would have to beg to eat.
If we live in a world of dignity, no man would have to live on the street.
If I tell you you’re a part of me, there’s no need for disbelief.
H ere is my hand, to let you know that what we dream weall can hold.
Apart we are weak….together we’re strong.

Oh, people….we are writing this song. We’re all living these words together forever.
There’s no reason we can’t live and be one…
Build the world that we want together.
For as long as you stand here by me… we’ll live on.

Think of all the possibilities that the eyes of a child can see.
Think of all the opportunities that float right by you and me.
Take my hand, and we will know all that we dream…we, our own.
Apart we are weak… together we’re strong.
