The White Man’s Lament.

We persecuted you for fun

and you tried your hardest to shine

light on our ignorance.

We ignored you for ease

and you looked for books to read

so we could learn.

We condemned you for pride

and you hoped we would relent

to let you go free.

We bullied you for approval

and we knew what we were doing

crushing you out of fear.

You wanted to share our plateau

and we lashed out to resist

the “burden” of being human.
