CONTRADICTIONS IN BLACK
(24 February 2008 by Carl A. Patton)
The Black Experience was way-laid
in dissension and those that
suffered from an abnormal past
that sent them into a manner
Was there hope alive in racism?
Will there be a change in the
mind and hearts of those confused
about all people and human rights?
Treason has no conscience.
The brother came to kill his
brother. He burned down his
own house and set fire
to the innocent, the old
and the helpless.
Who would save the Black man from himself?
John stood by, clutching and
holding on to his Bible.
He prayed with eyes wide open.
In his closet he talked with
God. There the crooked and
illogical road became straight.
What was normal to those confused
was way off to the left and the
goats ate their own dung.
The guilty were no longer guilty
as they yearned for change
and righteousness smiled at
this humble desire.
Hate consumed those once hated.
They now hated self as the
wicked now decided to be wise.
There was no profit in ignorance
although some flirted with stupidity.
