Affirmative Action - Poem by Kevin L. Parks

Affirmative action
Boy what a caption
Rooted in pain
We still have no gain
Now we'll sit lame
With no one to blame
It is truly a shame
That we need such a cane
For now we will struggle
Without a good juggle
If we would wake
There would be such a quake
For then we would make
And not have to take
We'd stand on our own
Without there a moan
We'd need not the fraction
Affirmative action
We'd have the traction
And not the reaction
Wake I say
And start a new day
Dare not to lay
Dare not to fray
But continue to pray
And shine like the ray
From whence cometh your pay
