    Double life

    by Raymond Nat Turner


    A family man

    A lovely wife and

    Two charming children


    A religious man

    Attends church regularly

    Wherever he goes


    A cultured man

    Invites great artists

    Over to visit and share


    An educated man

    Attended and taught at

    Top Ivy League schools


    An anointed man

    Laying claim to lineage

    Including Dr. King


    A peaceful man

    Accepted a prize

    The preacher paid his life for


    An athletic man

    He runs up and down 

    Basketball courts daily


    Is like Santa Claus “making

    His list and checking it twice,”

    Deciding who to kill this Tuesday…
