Human Species


so, you wrote
God,
humans,
and then us

so, you know
another
lesser
race
unlike you.
human like?
ignorant
pollutant.

so, you held
us unworthy
of reason
unfit
to study.

so, you taught
our
touch
pollutes.

so, you practise
Racism

    i had a little trouble at first, trying to figure out if where the commas all were made sense to me. when i finished reading i decided that the commas were ok where they were, but i wanted to know to whom the poet was writing. do you know? and do you know if it WAS a suicide note? ; one reader thought it was.
    if your friend doesn't mind you submitting the poem, then i say good for you to share it with poemhunter.
    thanks for sharing the poem and for the poem note. (Report) Reply
