Integration Blues

by Michael Finley

Brown’s been decided, did you here the news?
Separate but equal has been overruled.
With “all deliberate speed” the Court did shout,
but what was all the clamor really about?
Now we gotta go to new schools far from home
stuck amidst a sea of white -- all alone.
The law gave us victory but what else did it bring?
This integration is sure to be a messy little thing.
