Poetry of 2006/07 by Donna Flood
Half-Breed Clan

I must speak to the leaders of my tribe who know
We have a clan that is called half-breed, so,
They might have to cross swords with the youth
Who went to university, that place of truth.
They seem to be up in arms about the word,
Tell me they have assuredly heard,
The word Half-breed is an insult,
Maybe even coming from a cult.
In this world of political correctness,
Where everything must be in perspectus?
Should we think of a new word, too?
Maybe one that says half as much, a few?
How about, part of this and part of that,
Would that go on the line for stat?
By the way, I must confess,
I have no suggestions, none-the-less.
