MARILYN CHIN ~









B L A C K     P R E S I D E N T





If a black man could be president

Could a white man be his slave?

Could a sinner enter heaven

By uttering his name?



If the terminator is my governor

Could a cowboy be my king?

When shall the cavalry enter Deadwood

And save my prince?



An exo-cannibal eats her enemies

An indo-cannibal eats his friends

I'd rather starve myself silly

Than to make amends



Blood on the altar       Blood on the lamb

Blood in the chalice

Not symbolic        but fresh
