Poolside 1:15 P.M.
Sitting poolside at 1:15 P.M.
simply amazed by the potporri
of culturs intermingled in the
aqua-fried waters steaming in
the sun drenced blaze of July
Each bather laughing and frolicking
in the same liquid fun
ignorant of any bias here
at least on the surfaces
over which they all splash together
even here in the deep south....
where once men
and women and children
wore chains while others
depended on them
for most of their daily needs
Now black and white mingle
in a checkerboard of life
moving as one in a peaceful kingdom.
sometimes i wish the whole world
was sitting permanently poolside
at 1:15 P.M.
