Suspicious turbulence after the
race I gallantly won
Judges quarry I crossed lane,
To touch the finish ribbon first.

My coach continuously pat me on
the back
Whispers as I gasp,
“Good run my boy, soon,you will
Rule the world”.

Match commissioner approaches in
White shorts,
Pot belly jumps as he jogs
Wearing a tank top, carrying bold
Inscription of
“I love sports”.

See him mount pressure on my coach
Dramatize with a chalk
Hitting the score board, subsequently subtracting my scores…
What has my athlete done?

No black gold for a
Black boy.
