What If..

what if
down the road in time

a look back shows a loss of mind

facts wounded, locked in a bind

rummage through states of mind

shows emperor clinging to his line

time reveals some knew these truths

chose power, stayed tucked in ruse

when my granddaughter milli

painted her doll’s face black

we all yelled at her for it;

she’s the only black child

in our entire community

now i understand

dammit

now i understand
