    TOM THUMB
    ___________

    Once again...
    Clarence Thomas,
    Uncle Tom,
    To some ~
    Lost himself,
    To slave masters-
    Short-lived rights undone

    H-e-r-e...
    Come the judge
    Bush doted on
    Window dressing
    Digressing-
    White House walls
    To our chagrin,
    Justice halls
    Are whitewashed calls
    Where affirmative action
    Is certain to stall

    He may quote "Frederick Doulglas"
    Whose been there... and back!
    But Freddie dead,
    Does more in life-
    For the cause King mapped

    Caricature of a Black Man
    Clarence;
    Plucked for the draw
    Quite the artful dodger,
    In his master's palm

    feelin this. I wrote about Affirmative Action
    on my site so I'm all into this right about now.
    tho there was a ruling it didn't really seem
    to settle the matter for both sides.
    the hope is that the need for it is further
    defined. But if we don't step up and let
    our voices be heard I wonder who will be
    doing the defining... So did Thomas vote
    against it or what? What a world...
    peace

    Yeah, old Thomas is the "good house-negro"
    They never have to worry about him,
    He's got selective amnesia...
    And hates those who work the field
    Seeking anything but,
    Just-Us
