Poem: Assumptions

A black man and a white man Step into a room together And ever so carefully Peel off their skin Folding it neatly Over the back of a chair Before taking a seat Directly across the table from one other Staring deeply into the other's soul A blood sample is taken from both men Two vials of the deepest red Placed on the table in front of them Followed shortly by a set of [...]

Poem: Antifa Hair

You don't like my hair "It's kak!" you say And i feel so fortunate That you stopped by here today   You see i really didn't know, that i had "Antifa Hair" And it's only cos of someone nice like you who shows they care So many other passers got distracted by My pursuit of Justice that they missed that speck right in my eye But not you, no, you boldly logged on And [...]

Poem: Two boys went out to play

White self-professed racist With his hand up the ass of a puppet Spent his time using his reach To try help the rest of us gaze into the mirror While the one with the platform And all of the influence Could have gone there But all he got was this lousy t-shirt One threw his voice The other threw his voice away How is it that the Con ended up being more than Rad [...]

Poem: Hide and God Seek

It feels like you've been hiding forever While i stand in the sameplace pretending to slowly count down Backwards from my childhood When you were more than tangible and everywhere to be found i gave up looking in the church buildings long ago As so many of them seemed to somehow feel a lot more like church Once the people had left Laughing and chattering away As they skipped over the deep snoring sounds [...]
