POETRY

I have posted this poem in the past but it seems more appropriate then ever to post it again.

WHAT IS BLACK?

What is black?
Black is night.
Is day better?
Without night there is no day.

What is black?
Black is ebony.
Is ivory better?
Without ebony and ivory there
Is no piano.

What is black?
Soil is black.
Is green grass better?
Without soil, there is
No grass.

What is black?
Black is the color of skin.
Is white better?
Without our covering we
Are the same.

What is black?
It’s just a color.
