Children's Rhymes

By what sends
the white kids
I ain't sent:
I know I can't
be President.
What don't bug
them white kids
sure bugs me:
We know everybody
ain't free.

Lies written down
for white folks
ain't for us a-tall:
Liberty And Justice--
Huh!--For All?

by Langston Hughes

The poet is truly gifted..
To quote the words of Dr. King. A person should be judged by the content of their character and not the color of their skin. A true to life poem that a child could understand.
....it is sad there is this racial issue....but this is the gift given to humanity from previous generations...they (the parents) should have taught their children to love one another....love should be taught to children and not hate......hate is a word which should not be...
This poem spoke to me...
I love this, I really on the writing of people like Hughes, & also Maya Angelou, to understand what life was like I can read history books but the good guys dont always write the books.
