Viewpoint


no, no, no
no more do i want to be
a chinaman, brown-visioned
with all my yellowish
outlooks, yellowish sentiments
 
nor do I intend to be
a red-skinned big-foot
with my ancestors' vast land
all occupied by foreign devils
 
nor a rising black star
with evil pale-faced memories
nor a big white boss
with all his politically correct dollars
 
rather, I prefer to be a tiny rock
sitting still at a hilltop, on the roadside
watching, observing, or even
whistling when there is a wind blowing hard
