WHO GETS TAGGED WHAT AND WHY

what does a white
man have to do to
be called terrorist?

what does a white
man have to do to
get the angry photo
put in the paper?

what does a white
man have to do to
not be the lone wolf
not be depressed
but a terrorist, a terrorist!?!

answer: not be white

—William Skink

    What if you’re white and a little too green? Especially in Missoula for some curious reason.

      could be the start of another poem, steve:

      what if you’re white and a little too green?
      should you be labeled as totally extreme?
      protecting a rancher who won’t pay his due
      by pointing guns at the Feds—woo-hoo!
      that’s fine if you’re white and fall to the right
      but trade guns for a court, and right into left
      you’re an eco-terrorist or extremist at best
      American politics is a dangerous charade
      just boycott Indiana and enjoy the parade

        It’d make a good rap!

    That might sound pretty good with some musical accompaniment.
