Extra!

A boy yells from the sidewalk
Handing out factual ink
In exchange for a dime.

Extra!

"Black Man Sent to Prison."
Intellectuals are confused.
He committed no crime.

Extra!

There is no room in our schools
To teach the definitions
Of separate or equal.

Extra!

"How Dare Negro Criminals?"
We are good to them these days,
More than three-fifths people.

Extra!

We soak in the priest water
And enforce segregation;
Our opinions are right.

Extra!

This land is only my land.
This I read in the paper,
Clearly in black and white.
