A Rape That Wasn’t

“Black men are rapists” how easy
Was the argument to convict him
In the White court, Black man is sleazy
And a White man is pious pilgrim!

Who cares if a Black man lost his eons
Imprisoned in a White man’s jail
All opinions judge Black ruffians
Only fit to rot without a bail!

His faith at last overwhelmed his fear
After 47 years he’s now a free man
Why Black race is only meant to bear
Convictions burdened by the White Clan!”

No money can buy all his life lost
He laughs away what his family doesn’t
47 years is his Black skin’s cost
For A Rape That Wasn’t!
