Black Man

I am the new devil

The new oppressor

With my fade haircuts

And woollen beards

The breaker of women

And the father of many abandoned babies.

My muscles a symbol of the violence

That my fathers faced

And gave me to inherit

I am big and black

And there’s never been a bogeyman

Like me.
