same difference

the hate that you ate
became a race debate
hell naw, it’s too late
to re-rethink our fate
you helped to create
as you took the bait
refusing to resuscitate
any kind of loving trait
on a color-blind date
you choose to berate

why not erase the slate
let that huge chip abate
while hostilities deflate
so we can properly relate
feelings we want to state
as we struggle to translate
why we’re always so irate
over injustices that weight
the insides who conjugate
the sameness we repudiate
