Perhaps you have not read my love poems (LOL!) but I noticed this piece was written in prose, not poetry, but we get the message. We all have freedom of speech, so we live and let live, and respect those who write what they want to write.

This poetry form NAANI (Indian Telugu poem) uses 20-25 syllables in four lines, centering on one main topic, but here I used imagery and maintained its brevity.
Drinks of colored words
Flow with the writer's pen, his brush
Splashed a rainbow hued masterpiece.

HIDDEN MEANINGS- sometimes free form is a good poetry form to use for 'hidden meanings' on topics that might excite controversy, like race, religion, and politics. Here the term 'colors' may be taken a such but the end line 'their blood is red' confirms it was about racism. The words are simple but cutting, and it was brief, to add impact.
Sways the heart
Blurs the vision
White on top-
These have to go.
But with one color
It is said
All are bound
Their blood is... Red.
