Poem For Tulsa

3 Jun

Riot

Wealthy
black
affluent
cultured
businessmen
and families
pushed north
through the
fires.

A tragic tale
of greed
jealousy
and evil.

The part of town
where a ballpark
now stands
bears little
reminder
of past deeds
unpunished

except
current
socio-economic
patterns
where one group
thrives
and the
other just
survives

everyone suffering
as a result.

~Edward Austin Robertson~
