Racism In Poetry

Prejudice cannot be hidden,
Arrogance for the color of skin.
Its ugly head is here again
Racism is lurking within.

Disguised as mere poetry
Seething hatred shouts,
Name calling carelessly-
Gangrene inside out.

Our blood is all red-colored
Our hearts all colored rainbow,
Racist poems you authored
Your character, they show.

I was not brought up to be mean,
To racism I am not bent,
If that's where you have been
It's such a waste of your talent.





'A man of knowledge uses words with restraint, a man of understanding is even-tempered.'

Proverbs 17: 27

'Wise men store up knowledge, but the mouth of a fool invites ruin.'
Proverbs 10: 14

Beautiful rhyming in beautiful poem
We now see all this and more On our blessed idiot box channels Or by opening the internet door We get nature as mere pin up panels.........
To gather honey! With the muse of life and nature. Nice work.
