She jokingly asked
if I was coming out to
get some sun,
Then really got funny
by asking what kind of 
tanning lotion I used,
this on my coal black skin.

I told her I had sun enough,
and my own tanning lotion.
I call it "Hered i tan".
"What's that?," she asked.
"Well, its applied at birth,
lasts a life time,
won't wear off, rub off, or peel.
Oh, but only an exclusive group
can get it. If you don't belong
you just miss out and
have to spend a lifetime
using that cheap stuff.
Of course you never get 
the same quality."
