The wall was covered with Alec Baileys blood...

Walter Jones was a crying mess...snot covered
in black skin...both shook like leaves...both
were tired of the racism that had led to this
point...Our fathers made us this way I told
Walter...He didnt seem to notice my white words...
I am tired of being black and catholic...Those
were the most poetic words I ever heard another
human being say...and to hear it in the 5th
grade made me an especially lucky overhearer...
I knew then what side I was on...I knew then
what was right and what was wrong...Thank you
Alec Bailey...Thank you Walter Jones...Thank
you 5th grade poetry...
