POEM- Bigots As Patriots

Bigots passing off as patriots
In a sea of colour
Black brown yellow
White the major hue
Seeking mastery
Under the summer blue

Having a jaundiced vision
Fostering ethnic hatred
Stirring base emotions
A new tide of racism
Rooted in a photic nationalism
Centred on rednecks and pale faces

Seeking to make America great
In a freedom where whites dominate
Teaching how to hate
African immigrant Indian Mexican
Put them back in fetters
Determining boundaries
Whites feeling safer
To better maintain control
Make them feel degenerate
Who built America’s template
With blood and pain
Learning to give and take
Developing their personality against all odds
Standing on human dignity
In a culture of diversity
