Discrimination Here's You Come and Go


Discrimination’s like a snake
Its teeth in poisoned prejudice,
Causing ache

Discrimination abolished all warmth and spirit
And returned with a new hate
Relishing its pain brought
Never thought of halt

Hey
Discrimination’s the new law
Stony and steel and
Square without feelings
Like window frames
Of the Hall
In court

I wonder where the White’s Purity all gone.

Tears and Fears
Now the norm
In the name
Of discrimination

now
Gladly Discrimination has gone
Kicked out hard,
square and fair

Yet-
It left a hole
In everyone’s hearts.

    I know you should make your own meaning but I am so confused. It seemed we were talking of discrimination of the past and then with the line, I wonder where the White's Purity all gone, so you may be speaking of reverse discrimination or affirmative action mandates. Could you explain this poem a little further. (Report) Reply
