Southern Hospitality In Years Gone By? ..... [serious And Silly; Racial Prejudice; Short; A Cautionary Tale] - Poem by Bri Edwards
When I microwaved my FRIEND, it brought me to tears;
it also brought to me a sentence of ten hard years.
I would have gotten more time in the slammer, but....
I'm white, he was black, ....and we lived in Alabama.
No offense I mean to any members of another 'race'.
[That's just a cautionary message, to save my 'face'.]
If HE had microwaved ME, the tables would've been turned;
I'd have become a saint to the Klan, and he'd have been burned.
This silly AND serious, and totally made-up, tale....
was started in my head by a note from a PH gal.
'Mandolyn' is also silly. I had asked her if she had any other friend.
'Are they ok to put in the microwave? ' was the note she did send.
