Poem: “No Dogs No Negroes No Mexicans Allowed”

“No Dogs No Negroes No Mexicans Allowed”

Did you say I got
A lot to learn?

A, B, C
1, 2, 3

Is this wisdom?

In fact
I got nothing to learn
Need nothing to learn
Especially
Not from your
Hocus pocus
Corruption

My dog can teach
Me more about
Truth and Love than
Any institution

I walk with the dog
I listen with the dog
I shut-up with the dog
And I feel
Everything
I need to know

I know who you are
