BAB II (Because Am Black 2)


Because am black
I have reasons to walk tall
Like Edward the Black Prince

You see, the reasons I talk tough
Is because I talk thoughtfully
Like a Black Knight;

Now you will understand
Why my ego is rudeless
Like a Blacksmith’s hammer.

Because am black,
I do not have reasons
To explain why my smile sparks
Like Black Tahitian pearls
Nor I do have to apologize for being a Black Child!

And how sleep seems a goodly thing
