Branded

 

My white 

so thin skinned

yet precision skilled to

fillet and kill any soul that’s melanated 

 

Unabated savagery 

safe harbor lights 

cast on gated estates 

of 

sleep filled nights

 

Hide my shame

behind infamous flames

spangled and starred 

televised 

so

free and brave

 

Nepotism, 

inbred legacy

 retrograded lineage

Devolved humanity

 

God Bless!

This poem is about: 
My country
