To remind you of where you came from

Gold-Trochee

If my horse on the race course
a winner for me
then the course for my race horse
makes me debt free.

So the beat of the mare's feet
makes me debt free
gold such a treat for this feat
a winner for me.

Short Race poem by Wilfredo Derequito| Details | |

Humanity's Face

stand by your mirror,
see the human race
staring at your core,
reflected on your face.

a race that cannot forgive,
a race knowing no mercy,
a beast that does not give,
a beast that loves to slay.

ONE RACE ONE GOD ONE 
NAME

Short Race poem by Gerald Kithinji| Details | |

Uneven Race

…and those in the race
Continued running
And the gap widened
Between they and us
Who stayed behind
And invoked native ingenuity
To give value to our lives.

For us the race was run:
To beg their aid is taboo!

Short Race poem by bulinya martins| Details | |

secrets lost of the world long gone

secrets lost of the world long gone
arise from the belly of hereafter horizon
a deadly race to keep it hidden is on
the forces of light wrestle forces of darkness
and the poor human race is stirred
then left confused

Limerick: Once a Time-Keeper at race Marathon

Limerick : Once a Time-Keeper at race Marathon

Once (a) Time-Keeper at race Marathon
Decided to keep time on the run
He kept looking at watch
Runners forgot to watch
Ended up in Tower of London.

Short Race poem by Julia Ward| Details | |

To Rain

Rain, falling on black gate,
I like how you make it shiny,
how you make me want to smear my fingers
on its twisted bars

I do this,
and little droplets are on my black fingers;
I tease you of course
my fingers are white

Short Race poem by Cherie Gozon| Details | |

Race

The first step
In tiptoes
But the one I wanted to take.
The take-off.
 
The sprint
In circles
A mile then came back.
The lead.

I ran
So did you
Further away.
The catch up.

Each step
Nearer to the finish line
Moving on.
The race.

Short Race poem by Jajosh Ongado| Details | |

Martin Luther King Junior

Martin Luther King, Jr.

When innocent dies,
Whole universe cries,
Even of dear earth,
We can hear, outcries,
But selfish human being,
Never even sighs.

Perverse Equality

Chester Purvis is white and he is in prison.
Arnold Watson is black and he is in prison.
Nelson Windstalker is red and he is in prison.
Ernesto Valendez is brown and he is in prison.
Charles Tanaka is yellow and he is in prison.
This all must be some kind of perverse equality.

Safe Spot


                              go spot no spot stop
                      light is red now green I scream
                              dashing in and out
                      a clean sweep he lifts and bounce
                      tail wagging his ball retrieved
