MLK was fond to say
too many good words
to list here, eh?
Too bad he wasn't here to stay!

In quoting that infamous Bill of Rights
he may have started political fights.
In noting “all men are created equal”,
what if instead, he inserted a sequel:
Subtracting the “C”
and put in a “T”
so all could be TREATED equal?

To that, we say, a “touché!” retort
though on the way
this Davey H bray
is late one day
and at least a dollar short.

As a freckle-faced kid of chalky white
I barely knew of this MLK fight.
