Qualities All Races Share
Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
There are those who are stuck,
In discussions about race.
Like people today who learn,
Their children are not only using drugs...
But having sex in between clases.
And with a variety of colored folks.
One would think that wide screen TVs,
People have mounted onto walls...
Would send home a few messages.
Denial does come in assorted flavors as well.
And it is hard to tell,
When the mind and brain activity shuts down.
Folks love their sports.
And even ice hockey is integrated these days.
Leaving the discussion of race,
To those trying to intellectualize their own existence.
And wasting away a lifetime attempting to fine,
Something other than color that makes them unique.
Since cheating, greed, deception and corruption...
Seems to be qualities all races share.
With a praying to One Deity for a forgiveness of their sins.
