Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
No You Don't. AND, You Wont
'I am getting increasingly uncomfortable,
With all of this racist talk.'
That may be an honest admission,
You have openly stated to give...
For all to hear!
This has not prevented you,
From committing acts of racism.
That's where you and I disagree.
There is a difference in committing,
Acts of racism.
Than there is in the admitting of them done.'
'No you don't.
AND, you wont!
NOT from me!
I shall remain forever discreet.'
