What If We Were All Blue?

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Man

Man

What if we were all blue?

What would you do?

Would you call the cops on me if I was sitting in your café?

Would you feel threatened if I was walking your way?

What if we all had one color, how would you react?

Would I get arrested for walking, flung to the ground harmless and shot?

What if we all woke up and then saw we were transparent

Staring at each other’s guts knowing on the inside no one is different

Would you call the police if you saw someone with a bigger heart?

Would the cops come and begin to rip him apart?


What if the next day we were all black?

Would you report yourself to the authorities because you were driving while black?

Would you think yourself a suspicious individual because you wore a hoodi?

Would you feel good if you we beaten by law enforcers very badly

How would you react if somehow you were profiled?

Followed up and down in a store because you are a suspected thief

Would you be in disbelief?

Listen man,

I am not in charge of creating colors, it is just who I AM

I Am, just a frustrated human being. A misunderstood black man
