Black Lives Matter March on Madison Avenue

 

White millennials march past my rich window shouting “Justice.”

They have not earned the right.

 

They want to steal the complaints from the Blacks

And act like they’ve suffered.

 

If I were Black I’d kick them

Or beat them

For sucking onto my historical grief.

 

White girls and boys should not play at other people’s suffering.

They should wallow in their own grief.

 

They should complain that they’ve been given small brains

Identifying with other races that are not their own.
