A perverse inclination

based solely on pigmentation

this soul sick deviation

needs to be obliterated

from our nation.


Passed down from generation

to innocent generation

this unwarranted derivation

a differentiation over stated

resulting in segregation.


There’s no reason for separation

all seats the same in transportation

a single source for re-hydration

and all of this is simply abated

by monochrome education.


This concept is a violation

and its our personal obligation

to build a new foundation

for those once hated and fated

on which to create a shared salvation.
