Standing Tall

So many on the fringe decry
the election of the first black guy,
ignoring that he was half white
and always in his white relatives’ sight.
But does that make a difference
to any of them? Not.
Because, he’s black if he has just one drop
of black blood. And so this great American
has done many wonderful things for everyone,
but there is one unintended outcome
and that was to hasten
the revelation of the underbelly of racism.
How is that good, you may ask.
Well, we now see clearly the task.
To touch the hearts of Americans all
and hope the hearts warm and all grow tall
standing for justice, mercy, peace and
compassion for all.
