Poetry

Tale of Mike Brown’s

Once upon a time
There were two Black boys
Both Named Michael Brown
One, they called a thug
The other, a scholar
One was considered a disgrace to society
The other was respectable in all areas of society
One died in the streets of Ferguson, Missouri
One is headed to a prestigious college
One they labeled as troubled, and an outcast
The other they labeled obnoxious for his excellence
 
A Black boy can never win in a racist society.
