White Comedy

by Benjamin Zephaniah (b1958)
I was whitemailed
By a white witch,
Wid white magic
And white lies,
Branded by a white sheep
I slaved as a whitesmith
Near a white spot
Where I suffered whitewater fever.
Whitelisted as a white leg
I waz in de white book
As a master of white art,
It waz like white death.

People called me white jack
Some hailed me as a white wog,
So I joined the white watch
Trained as a white guard
Lived off the white economy.
Caught and beaten by de whiteshirts
I waz condemned to a white mass,
Don't worry
I shall be writing to da Black House.

I'm a retired journalist who still has stories to tell. This seems to be a good place to tell them.
