Misconception

Word on the street,

a black Man is in town.

Who is he looking for?

What does he want?

Curious minds chatter

trying to network

to find an answer

with consensus.

Oh! he makes first contact

with one of the ladies

and it is assumed

he is a womanizer.

A bad impression is spread;

plans to kick him out begins.

He leaves the following day

and words spread again

that the black man

was kicked out

for womanizing.

Without bothering to verify

curious minds find an answer

but in reality

he was just a lost black Man

looking for direction

in China town

and asked the lady

who alone understood English.

Happy Eid alFitr to our Muslim friends.
