My -ISM

My -ISM

A Poem by Rico X
"

Political and Socially Conscious Free Verse Poetry

"
Poetry is my
Ism
So I
Don't have time
For Rac-ism
Through my
Pr-ism
I see many
Colors and
Nationalities
As
My only
Abnormality
Besides
Being a Minority
That
You can find
Is that I am
Colorblind
And
Still
I have
No time for
Rac-ism
Sex-ism
As
Social Justice
Is always tugging
At my
Activ-ism
My recidiv-ism
So far
Thus far
Has defied
The odds
Because
My radical-ism
Is dipped
A little in
Juda-ism
Not Catholic-ism
Because my
Poetry is my Pope
As the Real-ism
Is that Terror-ism
Needs
Capital-ism
To change
As Liberal-ism
Mixed with
Social-ism
Could clear
The air
On health care
Making it more
Affordable and
More manageable
Than Obamacare
That's the flaw
In Capital-ism
Yet Individual-ism
Is celebrated
Though many
Are hated
It is still debated
Why
My poetry is
Still my -ISM
I
Don't have time
For Rac-ism
Because
Through my
Pr-ism
I see many
Colors and
Nationalities
As
My only
Abnormality
Besides
Being a Minority
Is
That
You can find
Is that I am
Colorblind

......... I am reminded very much of John Lennon when I read these words of yours .. although often isms tend to have a negative connotation, not all are thus tainted though .. I am a great fan and believer of the great mans Bagism ........... enjoyed by me and a fine introduction to your writing ..
