We spare our tears and weep not for thee

Raving, raging, racist though you be

For the poisons sit, seep, ever so deep

Lament for the white-tender-young

Legatees of racist-inspired-wrongs

God's own children taught to revile

Shared humanity of another hue

Joint-heirs of sun, air and dew

White eyes and ears imbibe the bile

Bitter fruit set their teeth on edge

Is it already much, much too late

To lock wide-open, infernal gates of hate?

Confused, contorted outlooks, views

Inundated with daily, hourly brutal news

Spin in malleable, chained hearts and minds
