Best Poem of 2005

This poem, written by an African child was nominated for the Best Poem of 2005.


When I born, I black;
When I grow up I black;
When I go in sun I black;
When I scared, I black;
When I sick, I black;
And when I die, I still black;

And ? White fellows;

When U born, U pink;
When U grow up, U white;
When U go in sun, U red;
When U cold, U blue;
When U scared, U yellow;
When U sick, U green;
When U die, U grey;
And U call me coloured?
