Art’s finger

I cannot challenge

oppressive views

with placards or

a protest march,

or be in demonstrations

in the flaming street

to press a cause

and show a better way.


All I have is myself

and my Art of words,

and I shall, through

these words,

point Art’s finger

at all who would

treat the other as less,

at every person

who fails to see

the meaning of

the word ‘best’.
