The Terrible Torment.

The names that are said
Stay in my head,
There's no escaping the terrible torment.
Names like chimp, Paki and poo
Come all too often for me and for you.
There's no escaping the terrible torment.
I get punched, kicked and smacked
For the simple reason that I am black,
There's no escaping their terrible torment.


Adam Hall, Y9.
