Hello, Fearful One

A petite Midwestern raised child
Arrives at a Southern institution
And fears the labors of speaking
With the Southern children.

At first they appear favorable,
Then they taunt her
And call her “cracker.”

The Southern children
Disdained her, too,

She is a petite white girl
With an oval white face
And solid pink blouse.

Regarding this
Petite, fearful child
She might craft a story
Devising tomorrow.
