Time for a Change


(George Floyd’s Police murder sparked BLM’s call for state name change to Rhode Island and Providence Plantations)

Swastika’s a good symbol in Hinduism,
To Jews, it is Hitler’s Hated Nazism!
Prov.’s Plantations: farms, not for slavery,
In black history, word’s most unsavory!
Black Lives Matter’s not superiority 
Over white lives, just equality.
In the home of the brave; land of the free,
Perception’s essentially reality!
There’s no question, tradition has its place.
But like Nazi symbol, it’s time to erase!
