such truth to your poetry...
It is amazing these things still happen. Your poem is so careful and clear and wellmade. A very gentle activism.
A very precise response to that story, Tina. Important message well said.
Thanks all. Yes, I couldn't believe that this sort of thing is still happening in 2009. But then I 'could' believe it, because I see it all the time.Parents are still teaching their children to be racist. As long as that continues, our children will always feel the sting.
"here's yr refund" - what a loaded statement, sticks afterwards, loved it
It is shocking to think these incidents still occur in this day and age. Your point was softly-spoken, yet assertive. Very well written.
Where did the Reconciliation poem go? I came over to read it again, Tina and it was gone.
Sorry Paul...I didn't think it was good...so I axed it
I don't think you've ever written anything that wasn't good, Tina.
Tina, this poem broke my heart.
