Bigot, -Me?


Prejudice seated deeply
in dark recesses.
Placed far back in forgotten
memories.

Small town redneck boy
unthinking.
Differences are not
to trust.

Grown man professing
enlightenment.
'All men are created
equal'.

Dark thoughts creeping
through light.
Heaven help me.
Bigot, -Me?

Children playing, laughing,
one white, one black
At which one,
will I smile?

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
