The Barrier of Race

Great Wall of China in Summer
Great Wall of China in Summer

As I sailed on the Titanic

The Mississippi came by

On it I saw a girl

Black, silky hair;

this one was special

Ebony; I named her

’cause her skin told it all

She opened the mystery of her eyes

Her mouth unveiled sparkling white teeth

I wondered which route she was en route

Her smiles immortalized my love for her

I wish it could remain this way

But one thing remained

Separated by the Great Wall of China

She was a Hutu, and I, a Tutsi

That jolted me to reality.

NO HOMO🙅 btw
