SHAME

      SHAME
Pretending what is not
avoiding what is so,
in learning how to do the things
to fool all those you know.

Breaking all the rules you make
The game you've played so well
Intemidation at its worst
is all you have to tell.

Your multi faces are well known
though you think you've spied
and fooled the least of hearts of man
not seeing how you've lied.

Our country tis of thee, tis writ
but double faced lives on
and trenchcoats in our parking lots
will never they be gone?

You've fooled the black community
who put you in this place
betrayed each heart, who love you so
admitting never your disgrace.

    Ha ha, the dow is just the dow and always shall be. Although I admit that Barack Obuma has done something for me personally that is one of the great things of y life, I still say he has failed miserably as a president and has totally betrayed the entire black community--it will take years, if not decades to correct the misery he has done to them. I still your friend, Judy. ron
