ARE YOU COLORED
Some whisper black, some mumble white,
When you marry them; they experience a stream of delight
The world started its life with the two colors united,
Then why there is a system that divides them?
Don't you remember how beautiful were those channels on tv?
Playing the black and white opera or a cricket spree
You appreciate the beauty of black and white photography,
Yet you discriminate a human based on topography
You admire the aesthetic tones of black and white in unison,
But look at them separately when it comes to humans.
You filter effects to look beautiful with black and white,
And yet when you come across a black or white person,
Your attraction gets biased between the two,
You look for more white and less black.
Aren't you a soul that's already blank?
