Kings

 

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.
