"Southern Cop" Revisited

by Reign

The administration warned me
not to discuss the poem.

They said the uproar it would cause

would eclipse the educational value.
Isn't that always the case against black art?
My mind snapped. I shouted,

"You are chained to the very words you condemn."

They saw my effort as being in vein,

only good for injecting rage and turning over
the once Abel, to 'Cain'.
