HAIKU OF THE DAY 08082018

There are few things worse than exhaustion plagued by fucking insomnia!

Watch Keith M. Kelley’s video: HAIKU OF THE DAY 08052018 (#205)

RACIAL PROFILING IS ILLEGAL (a sonnet)

His racial profile: scruffy, unkempt, blonde

Man/child of priv’lege born with silver spoon

wouldn’t dare call daddy to post his bond.

He prepared his hits in much cheaper spoons.

He stuck out like Shaq at a klan rally

soliciting for drugs from grandmothers.

He pitched a makeshift tent in an alley,

then raised funds off the kindness of others.

When he nodded off mimicking the dead

after flying higher than an eagle

Folks said he was there to score; the cop said

that, “Racial profiling is illegal.”

The shocked black man laughed, “Well, ain’t that some shit?!

When the profile’s white- now, y’all get it!”

HAIKU OF THE DAY 08022018

The author acknowledges the fact that people have the right to support whatever political candidate, party, or genocidal agenda they choose, and Black people (African-Americans) are not a monolith. Of course, the person pictured was not raised on a plantation (probably)! This is art!
