    Epithet of a Black Man

    He tips his hat
    And bows his eyes
    Submission in the back of his mind
    He drinks brackish water
    Which gives him a heart
    Brackish tears glitter in his eyes
    He wipes them away with a start

    Nevermore can he mourn for his lost brethren
    Hung, lynched, tarred
    Swinging in the breeze
    While master and mistress of the past look on

    He steps into the sunlight
    "Step alive boy"
    Oh the sound of the white man's voice!
    He could scream you bastard
    Demand tribute for the eversuffering black man
    He could, he could...

    He tips his hat
    And bows his eyes
    "Sorry suh" he mutters
    Coward mutters through his heart
    Oh you eversuffering man
    Oh you eversuffering coward
