Multicultural Thoughts - Poem by Barry A. Lanier


For all that we take with us,
We leave so much behind.
In the Southern stillness of night,
Blue and Gray are the same color.


The blacks, the browns,
The browns, the reds,
The whites, the yellows,
All dipped into blue.
Do not look as different.
Yet lifeless hands,
Holding a lively flower.
Draw attention.

    you know, i've never heard the 'war of Northern aggression' described better, or more succinctly.
    The right side might've won and written the history, but the war was still- as wars tend to be- wrong. (Report) Reply

    In the final analysis....'Blue and Gray are indeed the same color.' Excellent. (Report) Reply
