Significant

We scoured unslept nights
Fitted with the poets words,
Found men busted in buses
Some Indians red and dead
Duly busted as red ones are
In a white scheme of things.
There is nothing significant.

In a brown scheme of things
Brownest of them are busted
A matter of pigments of skin .
Somebody has to be busted.
But all that is not significant.

In a white scheme the black
Or the red is significant other.
In native brown ,only shades.
And depending on the shades
They are busted as the other,
A complex skin arrangement .

Somewhere in this skin thing
Is the wheat,not of our eating
But a metaphor of skin color,
A fairness not of judgement
A skin deep in fairness cream.
But it is not that significant.
