A Poem For Someone Who I May Not Know But Deserves The Honorable Mention

October 19, 2019

There Is

There is someone fussing

When they do not like what I do

I said let me step aside and give a tribute

I understand identity

I know I am Black and feature white

The math is 1/4

I know when people choose to do fractions

When they have already lost in life

I have won awards

I have done good things

I stepped aside to do a tribute

There are people fussing about these things

There is someone who do not march, argue or fight

Someone who is a participant of a game that I got to play in throughout life

I have won awards and received excellent things

Someone is fussing because I stepped aside to pay tribute

To the white man who would win at this chess game

From the vantage point of not having had someone march or fight for these things

I am not racist or sexist

However, there is something I do see

I pay tribute to whatever "white" man would have won

If there was no access for me

Imagine being a good mammie

Who understands they are beat by girls who drive

And can run from present danger, that they do not know exist from sitting inside

There is someone fussing

Because of something that I do

On the day they clap for my new sneakers

I hail the man who did it all without a shoe
