When A “Negro” Knocked A White Man’s Door

What brought a Black boy to white fief
If not an act of felony
How a Black betrayed a White’s belief
Why he bowed low with a litany!

Since “Blacks Are Bad” he seized his gun
To deal with the monster in Black boy
How a naive knock is an invasion
Ask that White bigot living racist lie!

“We are not them, they are not us”
And the White man shot a ‘lesser species’
Why spite for Blacks is so spontaneous
As though they are infectious disease!

A Black boy survived a White man’s hate
Like a Black bull, a White mean matador
American Dream, seemed, delusion great
When A “Negro” Knocked A White Man’s Door!
