Subtle And Expected To Be Effective

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Subtle and expected to be effective,
Are those racist implications.
To those attempting to integrate,
A blending of ideals.
For the purpose of expressing humanity,
At its best.

And that's great!
For those who sit with patience to wait,
For someone else to allow them...
An opportunity to appreciate,
Without making demands for this in protest.

'We shall overcome.
We shall overcome,

~What are we seeking? ~

'Identity! '

~And when are we seeking it? ~

'Uh...um, er...uh...
Now? '
