The Deepest Dye

There are those loaded with the painters ink
In contrast, people whose hues are wane
Forced upon the Artist's palette, they link
Brushes and strokes, on the canvas he stains
Some inquire, where in this painting fit?

No measurement, the whole in each pigment
Colors a must! Lest monochromatic
Splash and splatter! Shades all highlights, they hit
With the Master's hands he fans, kin and clans
His vision; transcendent mural piece

Throw back the covering, reveal his plan
Enjoy artistry, in each colored crease
Complexions clash in hostility, Why?
Goals deep! even for those, the Deepest Dye

POEM: Inspired by Benjamin Banneker's Quote

"I am of the African race, and in the colour which is natural to them of the deepest dye; and it is under a sense of the most profound gratitude to the Supreme Ruler of the Universe. "

Benjamin Banneker
October 9, 1906 - November 9, 1731 American Scientist (wrote a Almanac)
