Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
Displays Of Diversity
They insist they wish more displays,
And less racism expressed.
To move forward their policies of democracy.
And yet with their attempts with incompetence made...
They find themselves disqualified.
Since in a suburbanite isolation...
Is the only progress shown they have ever made.
With feelings they know best,
How to save and protect their own interests!
They insist they wish more displays of diversity!
As long as there are more of them...
And fewer minorities!
