Poem on Racism

I just deleted a poem which was about the hypocrisy of Southern white racism, where whites are nursed as infants by black, wet nurses, but then support a system of racial inequality. Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions was simply a handy tool to make that point. It served its purpose in helping me crystallize and verbalize my feelings, but I am afraid the poem might be perceived as a personal attack on the Attorney General and so, it’s gone.
