Bigot, -Me? - Poem by Roger A. Rose

Prejudice seated deeply
in dark recesses.
Placed far back in forgotten

Small town redneck boy
Differences are not
to trust.

Grown man professing
'All men are created

Dark thoughts creeping
through light.
Heaven help me.
Bigot, -Me?

Children playing, laughing,
one white, one black
At which one,
will I smile?
