Treasure Island

John McAdam


Race


What world have I
been born into?
where thing are about race
and not merit

though people say
it is for merit
it is only half
the time

when you buy a pet
you care not of its color
it's all the same
so why does a humans skin
make a difference?
its just another breed of human
like a schitzu or chiwawa dog

are we not
just another pet?
the owner being government

so live not by
race
but cruise life with
merit

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
