Ms Stanley, Do You Have The Time?


Ms Stanley, do you have the time?

I was hoping you and I

could take a walk through the Anatomy Lab,

we would go past the test tubes of blood

Red,from people all over the world,

we would not stop where the viruses grow on every kind of pink tissue from every nation and land,

We wouldn’t stop at the microscopes to see the brown cells swollen with melanin on your skin,

but instead we would walk to skeleton room, the bowl of bones, and wouldn’t you be shocked to find,

No black bones there.
