Optional Thoughts...Not Opprobrious...

(Edited And Rewritten After Years of  Much Rethought)

 

That the chief residence

of colonized power

would be called

the White House

was no coincidence

of conscience

but a purposeful reflection

of the grandeur

of the plantation mansion…

 

Pre-reconstruction

political parties

had their ivory tint too:

adding mathematically  

reconstruction

ebony hues

to equal the majority…

 

While all this may seem like

opprobrious ranting

check out all today’s parties—we 

 too—independent as well—

a minority in more ways than one… 

 

If black lives mattered like all others,

why would all Afro-Americans

defecting into a single unified party

be considered a black panther

threat to the American way…why?

 

Strategy is strategy…whatever 

its hued tint—check today’s parties.

If this be deemed opprobrious thinking,

Then so mote it be.  Think about this.
