POETRY CORNER

The Black and White Of Politics

My brain and your brain aren’t the same.

Let me explain, I think differently.

There’s ancestral blood running through my veins.

Full of anger, rage, and pain.

I admit it makes me sound like a wounded animal,

One that screams and pleads for help.

I’m the one who bites back when attacked.

The spirits call on us to be their voice,

I have no choice.   

Sorry, I don’t believe in what the elite run media is spewing.

No matter the evidence you display.

I will still see things differently.

All this leads me to believe,

White people may feel the same.

Having ancestral blood running their brain. 

All that hate mixed with fear is flowing in your veins.

Centuries of entitlement, murder, deceit and power-hungry greed.

Mabey that’s why even now you set up a system designed to kill us,

By legislation, programming, punishments, and injustice

The Americans of 2020 are of a mixed race!

We’re black, brown, white, Indian, and Caribbean.

This boiling pot is a mixture of colorful citizens who want to be free.

Free to think

Free of pain, hate, shame and bigotry.
