When Society’s Lost

When Society’s Lost


I heard a man, with disdain,

Call someone an ugly name.

A man’s race attacked,

Defenses ransacked,

But the first man took no blame.


When one man hates another

Just because of skin color,

It comes at what cost–

Society’s loss,

Where no one can be brothers.


Racism’s not died away,

Though it belongs in decay.

We must fight for peace,

For equality;

By example, lead the way.


(Thank you for joining me on a limerick exploration.)
