Black-Out - Poem by Clarence Michael James Stanislaus Dennis

These English actors are too mild,
Who seek to have their wrongs redressed.
No manager may be beguiled
By supplication or request.

Some sterner action is required,
A union boss they should engage,
If coloured folk are not desired
To 'crab their acts' upon the stage.

Ours is the method when in doubt;
And they should follow in our track.
And, if they'd keep these niggers out,
They promptly should 'declare them black.
