Poetry Corner: :”Black Lives Matter”

Black Lives Matter

Yes after years of discrimination you are red hot mad
UNDERSTOOD
but as a white guy and my children I am a worthless filthy scum
You have labelled me so quickly as some sort of bum

while banging your drum
hey as a white I am on your side
But for fucking sake don’t stereotype me and increase the divide
herald the trumpet of your “liberation”
where global inclusion
equals reverse racism
global inclusion
for us bastard whites means exclusion
go ahead on secure your illusion
racism is on your side
have your way
we poor innocent white folks
will be taking a segregated bus
like Rosa Parkes
you savvy political sharks

Of course, dare I say all lives matter
I am a racist pig for telling the truth
I am not buying that guilt shaming piece of shit
this is it
