Most Dangerous

I am the most dangerous of all creatures,
living with the ridicule of my features.
No one is as revered as me,
moving in a world where I cannot be free.

I am the most dangerous life,
existing within a society who criticise my wife.
My culture is harvested for a price rate,
seeing through bloody eyes that endure hate.

I am the most dangerous of all souls,
inhaling the toxins of my suppressed goals.
My every action is a judicial question,
dreaming of stories with a negus direction.

I am the most dangerous essence,
creating children that die even before adolescence,
No one has history more distorted,
transitioning from a King to a ‘guilty man’ escorted.

Who Am I?
I am the most dangerous being… An Educated Black Man.
