You Get Equality! And You Get Equality! Everybody Gets Equality!

A growing social concern

That, to us, recently came

And affects the common person

Is Inequality of Fame.

Some folks are very famous

And some people are not

And it’s patently unfair

And it ain’t how it ought.

I suggest a policy

Wherein all people must

Create a social profile

With a media giant we trust

And exactly one trillion people

And never more or less

Must follow every profile

So society won’t regress.

If everybody’s famous

We’ll have perfect mental health.

Then maybe a trillion dollar minimum wage

Can do the same for wealth!

Update: It’s come to this poet’s attention that white, heterosexual, natal-males still exist, so this probably won’t happen for a while.

9/10 University Professors Think This Acronym Is Invalid…

If you’re like me and I’m like you

You hear a lot about LGBTQ,

Perhaps even about BIPOC,

But never about SPWCOV.

Now it’s important to tolerate

Those who are gay, lesbian, trans,

And those who are bisexual

And whatever it is for which “Q” stands,

It’s important to have empathy

And remember the plights

Of those who are indigenous

And all the other non-whites,

And women deserve a mention

So the feminists can’t fine us…

But what about the Straight People

Without Color Or Vaginas?

I Guess This Makes Me A Bigot, Right?

Go back a century or so

And you’ve got places blacks can’t go.

You’d be shamed to dare to love

A person from a class above.

Today my alma maters wants

To build us “No white student” haunts

And though we seek to seem the same

What’s “Commonplace” is seen as lame.

Back then we fought for equal rights

For blacks and browns and reds and whites.

Now in our “That’s racist” nation

We praise illegal immigration.

Does no one else yet see the flaw

In praising those who break the law,

The symptoms of a dying nation

Shouting for resegregation?

Yes, I want love, so please desist

With calling me “Supremacist”

And maybe past our skin we’ll find

We share a human heart and mind.

My Protest Poem

I was going to write a poem today

That would blow your socks away,

But it might please lawmakers in North Carolina

And so I didn’t.
