Better Platitudes

Black Poetry


Do not seek a place

on the other side of

this nice fence 

we built around you

and your people.


In fact, speak softly

when white supremist

white men in the white house

say, "Speak quietly. Not

at all would be better,

don't you think?"


We are all human

so never set yourselves

apart from majority 

benevolence. Afterall,

the plantation model

was the best social

structure ever built.



Author's Notes/Comments: 

For folks who do not listen to the fake media, the message that BLACK LIVES MATTER got through loudly and indelibly. ~S~
