Black Coffee

Coffee

Is black

Why

Do you like

Drinking

Coffee

In the morning

Under the palm tree?

And at night

Why

Do you drink

Coffee

With milk

And you spread

Nut butter

On you fresh bread?

You don’t like

Blacks

Why

Do you drink

Very black

Coffee

In the morning

Like morons?

And at night

Why

Do you drink

Dark coffee

With milk ?

Leave me

In peace!

Racism is

Absurd

And stupid.
