 Example Poem
 
Forfeited Opportunity     (La Grange Quatrain)

Undeserved, he’s still receiving
approbation from the left.
While the right is past deceiving
and he forces wide the cleft.

A white guilt, earned by grandfathers
and augmented by black pride
brought to office one who bothers
not at all laws to abide.

Our first black to claim the title
has mis-used the office throne
gaining wealth as though entitled.
redistributes what’s our own.

Were I black I’d be resenting
the destruction he’s allowed;
this historic representing
should have made all races proud.
