tan is one thing
get it at
a spa better
an expensive resort


you'll still be
white behind
the ears and
where the sun don't shine


besides there will
be skin whiteners
just as now
your teeth gleam


like you were
reading the news
on TV and smiling
with lips drawn back


when everyone
can be what color
they choose the
only way to find


a race is on your
voter card application
or from your census
enumerator's worksheet.
