Where Demographics Are Marketed - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I can not be a true racist.
There is nothing I possess,
That controls or influences...
Whose lives I affect.

I am not a controller of quotas.
Nor can I influence those who do.
And I know no one influencial...
Who hires and fires,
Or decides who should choose.

I can not be a true racist.
There is nothing I possess,
That controls or influences...
Whose lives I affect.

If I am connected to the media,
I certainly do not own it.
And nothing I write to publish in print...
Has my last word,
Where demographics are marketed.
Or whose mind will be convinced.
Wherever the message I convey is sent!
