A Few Words FYI

I’m a raghead, too
I’m a gook, a dink, a sand nigger
And whatever epithet you choose to spew.

I have walked these lands since the birth of time
The skies overhead have been my ancestors’ skies
Now you say they belong to you.

I am just an inconvenience, pebble in your path
Just a pebble to be kicked aside
Tell me now, is that not true?

And when I refuse to bend
When I fight back for me and mine
It is horror and anathema to you.

I may be a raghead
Gook, dink, sand nigger, the trash of the earth
But I am human too.

Believe it or not, you are not gods
And time will grind your towers to dust
Just as we are now dust to you.
