Because I like compartments and squares and boxes.
I like to know what is what and where is where, and which side you’re on and which side I’m on.
I like to control and segregate, and separate and articulate.
I like to say black is black and white is white and wrong is wrong, and right is right
and you can be either one or the other.
I want to say ‘I’m whiter than you’ or ‘you’re blacker than me’ but at the end of the day, let’s face it I’m grey.
And I want the world to be black and white, but I want it to be gracious to me while I’m grey.
So perhaps I should return the favour.
