Jared Bradford

Rookie (5/4/92 / Michigan)


Ties a rope around his neck
Pulls it tight up to a pole
He thought he could see
Between friend and foe

He already sees a light
Then they pull the lever
He doesn't hit the ground
In the after-life forever

All just for being
Just a different color
When it shouldn't even matter
Because we are all brothers

Black is black
White is white
If you can't accept it
Get on the next flight

Doesn't matter what you are
Black, Red, White, Blue
Accept each other
And God will accept you.

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

Adam Scrivener, if ever it thee befall
Boece or Troilus for to write anew,
Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
