Veteran Poet - 1,108 Points (7TH OCTOBER 1951 / Trissur, Kerala State, India.)


Whiteman, whiteman you have
Been all over the world,
Ruling, living, replicating,
In india, asia, africa, americas,
Founded roots in the euorope,
You had conquered and spread
your toungueand religion
To suit to your needs.
In india you demolished
The native kings, changed
The religion of many people
And invaded from England, Spain
France and Germany, apart from
The others of europe, wave
After wave in war and merchandise,
Cut the hands of many to end
their intelligent crafts, to spread
The sale of your own goods,
And left the land devided,
To fight among themselves,
so you still be supreme.

In americas you demolshed
A whole race of the native Indians,
Cheating them of their own
Land where they existed peacefully,
and cut the breasts of their
Womenns' breast t use as
Tobacco puches and killed
All the men and children
Mercilessly and made the land
Your own, and advice the world,
Of peace and kinship through
the barrel of gun you loved
so dearly which did your conquers.

Most of you still descriminate,
Keeping away other colored,
Many of you still fight other colored,
Who live peacefully, but you live
On their produce, meat and grains,
By the currency rates you made,
Deavouring and endeavouring.,
Forgetting that you came from
Africa, the blackman's continent,
And your skin colored white
Due to the cold of nature.

Ravikiran Arakkal.

Comments about White Man by RAVIKIRAN ARAKKAL

    Rama's wife Site was not abducted by a white man. The conflict of the Kauravas and Pandavas did not involve white men. If Kali has chosen a white man to punish you, who are you to say otherwise. The High One will judge all by their hearts, not their skin color. Do you give alms to the poor? Do you feed the hungry? Do you shelter the homeless? Please do not use poemhunter.com to spread your racism. (Report)Reply

    Mr. White

    known as a world traveler
    to many around the world,
    there’s no corner of Earth,
    he hasn’t been to, or somehow touched.

    a traveler, well known,
    to kill you with the kindness
    of his liquor,

    when he’s not stealing all you own.

    Mr. Black says:
    his blue eyes are a ocean of trouble,
    that mixes with the people, and
    changes the color of the children.

    Mr. Yellow says:
    rice stopped growing,
    when Mr. White’s footsteps
    soiled the ground with land-mines.

    Mr. Brown says:
    he brings a loud religion
    that promotes democracy,
    and searches for material things,
    that has nothing to do with Allah.

    for those who know not of Mr. White,
    will one day meet this world traveler,
    and see,
    inside his blue eyes,
    the 'devil’s dog' of war,
    knockin’ at your door like a salesman
    promoting his bible & sellin’ guns.
