In America

they did a survey once
how much to be black
in America
how much money
would someone have
to give you

a million
a million dollars
was the minimum

The United Negro College Fund
had that poster
with a child’s mournful eyes
beseeching you
just a little help
and the caption
“A mind is a terrible thing to waste…”
“on a nigger!”
I heard two of my
countrymen cackle
as they passed by
in my country
