If I Was White - Poem by Philip Charles Brown

If I was white, i'd be rich
get a shovel, make a ditch
fill it up with water
workin like I oughta
Build my castle therewithin
And then it would all begin
If I was white, I'd have a maid
Go and get myself spade
and dig a hole where dirt once laid
put all my treaures there within
and there it would all begin
If I was white
I'd shine so bright
A mirror facing the sun am I
I lighten up all the sky
and there it would all begin
If I was white
and you were not
and I did not know what the world has taught
I would love you
and share with you
my castle and my treasure too
I would shine so bright for you
