Black & White

Black & White

There was a time she would have been
sent away to live with a distant relative,
some school of reform, labeled crazy
or even burned at the stake---

They, being inferior, would hang
by the throat with rope,
dancing beneath the trees
until their tongues lolled,
or roasted on spit---

In preservation of what?

We've come a long since---

Is it always black & white?
