Racist amongst us
are pen to paper
whilst revulsion is to
haters. As chauvinistic is to bigotry as xenophobia is to
discriminators. Truth be told, prejudices’
plague our nation,
an’ our souls.
Racist amongst us
are pen to paper sketching our ignorance
with ONE Crayola crayon.
Theft By Deception
I can’t remember his name. But I know;
we loved once. I can’t remember his game,
but I know that I was always sent back to start, and it was a good one. I can’t remember a thang. But,
he says to me, we once said “I do.” If, this is true. Theft by deception
is ev’r so cruel. 911 what can I do?
Knocked Waaay Out The Park!!!
Don’t take her out to the ball game.
She wants not your peanuts nor crackerjacks. Surprise!
She remembers the very first strike! Then strike 2,
came. Her family and friends knew not just what to do! Strike 3. GRAND SLAM;
was hard as can be and she lost all sense of time and memory! God said
twas’ a home run! Cause when she awoke
she was standing in judgement of His Only Begotten Son.
Don’t take me out to no ball games!
And I surely don’t want no peanuts
nor crackerjacks, cause I care waaay too much, about getting back!
