A CLEAN OR SHINY FACE

By 26th February 2007December 9th, 2019No Comments

“Go wash your dirty little face…
Then with the others take your place.
If you do not please me…
Then you will not get your tea.

You haven’t washed…I can tell you have not…
You lying little article…in hell you’ll rot.
You’re an absolute disgrace…
Now go back and wash your filthy little face.

When niggers don’t wash their faces…they’re shiny.
Now go back and wash…you little piccaninny.
Wash that shine off your little nigger face.
If you don’t I’ll put you in your place.”

So…I rubbed and I scrubbed…
And I soaped…and I hoped…
But I could not get that shine off my face…
What a disgrace!
