Discrimination

Rating: 2.8
I don’t mind the human race.
I’ve got pretty used to them
In these past twenty-five years.
I don’t mind if they sit next
To me on streetcars, or eat
In the same restaurants, if
It’s not at the same table.
However, I don’t approve
Of a woman I respect
Dancing with one of them. I’ve
Tried asking them to my home
Without success. I shouldn’t
Care to see my own sister
Marry one. Even if she
Loved him, think of the children.
Their art is interesting,
But certainly barbarous.
I’m sure, if given a chance,
They’d kill us all in our beds.
And you must admit, they smell.

Does it feel bad to be a disgusting person? The only person that stinks is you. If I were given the chance I would kill you in your bed too. smh

It's a satirical poem, being " racist" to the whole human race. Are you the racist? What race came to your mind?
