SICKNESS

Racism
Sick, still here, like a disease
like "H" in their vein.

on the street 'h' means heroin and nothing else ... so it was clear to me but I can see where there are other words that might come to mind, but none are as poisonous and as addictive and as self destructive or as subject to scrutiny as regards the source of and the purpose of such volumes of 'h' and other drugs ... a source of hatred, perhaps, by groups with money and power .. just like racism often is and once you've got it in the air it is very difficult to deal with and will bring the house down if not eliminated .... that's my t ake and i like yer poem

I'm sorry penname. Yes,I was a little vague using the simplistic "H" but actually thought it would be easy to make the connection. Another example of what is in the writers mind doesn't always come across clearly in the readers mind. Hate works well, so does Heroin (in the vein).Meaning racism nor the use of heroin are sicknesses not easily remedied. Virginiaswemedmonds, I hope you are right about your reference in 20 - 25 yrs.; that would be something to celebrate! Thank you for your comments, all are appreciated.
