Un-Educating Racists - Poem by John Murtagh
Colours just refracted pitch
as shades of self reflect within
Lessons frail young clean heart cries
lay desolate when sold a sin
Never knew a difference - ever was
but question models higher role?
To preach away inherent love - replaced
to bleach a child-like soul
How blessed was I with empty gift
of never learning - even told
How people turned with blanket eyes
corrupted lessons - mentor cold
What knowledge left for tainted ones?
learn adults - hold a child to see
Not load love lessons - moral choice
un-educate - then child like be
Remove hate layers - overgrown - of rusted
love and gestured smile
Or watch young children play - become
your jury - at God's holy trial
