Langston Hughes once asked if Death
Would find the life of a white
Multi-Millionaire more important than
A Black cotton-picker. It does
Make you wonder. I, today,
Ask if the life of Governor Ron DeSantis
Is worth more than that of activist
And actress Laverne Cox?
It is my opinion, if I may, to say
That ALL life is created equal
And worthy of dignity and
Love. In the end, Death sees us
As all the same, and is the
Ultimate, unbiased individual.
