Why do Racist Preen

God created both morning and night
but some folks desecrate
and do not appreciate
the mortals He molded, black or white
in His image, equal in His sight.

This creator made  darkness and light,
skies decked with stars and Moon,
the Sun that reigns at noon;
all these glowing daily in our sight,
why do racists preen in flagrant flight?

You were helpless when your skin was made,
or was it your own choice?
why flaunt now with your voice
a cauliflower that will someday fade,
as seasons soar and ages cascade.
