by way of a book on photography

oddly enough


one King said “I have a dream”


I have a dream

that this nation will rise up

that this nation will live up

to its founding fathers creed


we hold these truths to be self-evident

that all men are created equal


I have a dream

that former slaves may one day

that former slave-owners may one day

together sit at the table of brotherhood


I have a dream

that my four little children may join

that your own little children may join

hands with their white brothers and sisters


I have a dream

that every valley will be exalted

that every hill will be made low

that every rough place will be made plain

that the crooked place will be made straight


that the glory of the Lord be revealed

and all flesh see it together


another King said “Why?”


people, I just want to say

cant we all get along

why cant we all get along


both Kings said this


it's wrong to let colour be our difference

when our hearts inside are all the same



If you’re interested, the title of the book I was reading

is “Photographically Speaking,” by David du Chemin.
