Wendy Jane’s Facebook Poem Of The Day

16 Mar

In a prior post, I mentioned that I write daily poems on Facebook  made from my friends’ posts.  And, even though I thought I’d take a break after completing my 30 posts in 30 days goal, I couldn’t resist posting last night’s FB poem.  There were so many posts on racism, that I thought it fitting I share it here.

FACEBOOK POEM OF THE DAY (made from your posts)

…you write the posts, I just put ’em together-strange how many posts mentioned racism today…

where the white man
went wrong
what’s up with
all these racist receipts?
“ugly itch”
She is probably
plotting revenge

weird incident
Charlize Theron adopts
a black baby
no hate
Black on Black & White
stay native my friends

Blatant racism just
the way I like it
Mitt Romney: I can relate
to Black people. My
ancestors once
owned slaves
…but we knew
this already
Beyond Black & White
