To the extent a man identifies
With “whiteness” is the same extent
To which he spends endorsing fakes and lies,
Time which could be much better spent.
The “white men” have been tigers at the throats
Of many not inferior,
Though terroristic propaganda dotes
On allegation’s hollow core.
Whatever you may have been taught in school
(From many a book that lines the shelf)
The levers of enslavement always cruel
Are such no man desires himself.
Lay aside the illusion of improvement
Brought to the slave by the enslaver,
“Civilization” preached by persons who’ve meant
Nothing but insolent palaver.
To the extent you claim yourself as white,
So far you are a terrorist
Without any emollient in sight
To self-esteem—save you desist.
