Sports, Jail or Books

by Nadra Enzi

You'll give a Black boy a basketball or football...
over a book...
Not knowing how this limits his outlook
Sports are good for strength and speed
Books are good for read and lead
The less time reading... or at the library...
Means, potentially, more time... in the penitentiary.

The writer says, "...I've been reading so long...
... can't recall when i wasn't..."
