The night is falling on Halloween
No trick or treaters, there is too much fear
and it is turning bitter cold

It didn’t used to be this way

America has changed
The media has helped
to instill fear in us

but the streets are less safe

Blacks are afraid of whites
Whites are afraid of blacks

far too often

How do we break down this wall
How do we get past the tension

It is a primal feeling:
to feel more comfortable
with “your own kind”

A terrible way to put it
but that’s the way I see
our problem

our problem
of racial division
in the USA

140 years past the Civil War
